Coastal Fisheries Initiative


Fishers and fishmongers from Maio Island travel to San Vicente Island to learn good practices in processing, marketing and community organization for more sustainable communities, businesses and ecosystems.

In Wondama Bay, West Papua, the Indigenous community practices a traditional conservation mechanism called "Sasi" in an effort to preserve fisheries resources and the marine ecosystem.

Women  processors learn to smoke fish with FTT ovens, which reduce their exposure to heat, burns and toxic smoke while also reducing the amount of wood - often from endangered mangroves - used as fuel.

Sustainability, the circular economy and conservation are concepts that have become a part of the vocabulary of artisanal fishers and entrepreneurs in Galapagos. 

Artisanal fisheries protect marine biodiversity, but the market is an uneven playing field: small-scale fishers and fish workers find solutions to safeguard their ecosystems and livelihoods.
