SUPPORT SMALL-SCALE FISHERS IN SOUTH AFRICA

Your donation will help us to continue empowering
small-scale fishing communities to demand,
organize for and strengthen their food sovereignty.

Programmes

Masifundise facilitates the formation and growth of mass based
community organisations in poor coastal areas. 

Publications

Masifundise develops discussion papers that speak in the voice of traditional small-scale
fisher fishers and critically analyses some of the important concepts and definitions
related to fishery policy and management. 

Our Vision

We have a vision of empowered SSF communities with the ability to build
and strengthen their food sovereignty within a more just and democratic
socio-economic and political environment.

Coastal links and Masifundise are urging Minister Creecy and Department of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment (DFFE) to revise the traditional line fish allocation to ensure a fair and equitable distribution that reflects the commitments made to the small-scale fisheries sector over the years.
