WWF- SA Small-Scale Fisheries Learning Journey Initiative

The World Wide Fund of South Africa (WWF – SA ) is undertaking  a two day learning excursion to West Coast fishing communities.

Representatives from Masifundise and Coastal Links as well as leading retailers are part of the programme, which is taking place today and tomorrow – 23 and 24 July.

Participants will discuss the small-scale fishing sector and look at ways in which it can be supported and strengthened.

This initiative will see retailers and small-scale fishing communities exchanging knowledge about the challenges and opportunities that small scale fisheries in South Africa present retailers and other major players in the seafood supply chain.

The learning journey offers a unique opportunity for the retailers to engage with small-scale fishing communities and look at ways in which they can support them in their efforts to create sustainable fisheries and livelihoods through Fisheries improvement projects, which many retailers have made commitments of supporting.
