Secure Fisheries’ projects connect fisheries stakeholders to our original research products through trainings, interactive data tools, research networks, and community engagement.
Project Kalluun is a project between Secure Fisheries, City University Mogadishu, and the UNFAO to organize fisheries catch information at Somali fish landing sites through training, community engagement, and primary data collection.
Project Badweyn is an interactive, web-based mapping tool for understanding connections between Somali coastal activities and marine resources. The project seeks to identify potential conflict hotspots and inform sustainable fisheries development.
The causes of fisheries conflicts are diverse, complex, and often indirect. Consequently, a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to understanding – and thus preventing – fisheries conflict is needed. In 2017, Secure Fisheries launched the Fisheries Conflict Research Consortium to bring together academics, policy advisers, and NGOs.
Stable Seas is a project between One Earth Future programs Secure Fisheries and OEF Research that examines maritime security in Sub-Saharan Africa across nine issue areas to identify maritime crime linkages and avenues for improving maritime security.
Understanding the contribution of women to fisheries and their unique role in providing food security is vital for equitable fisheries development, economic and nutritional stability, and informed fisheries management.
As part of a National Science Foundation Grant, Secure Fisheries leads efforts to understand how food and economic security provided by Lake Victoria’s fisheries will change in response to a growing human population and cage aquaculture.
Cage aquaculture is a burgeoning and controversial development in Lake Victoria. Secure Fisheries has partnerships around East Africa exploring the impact of the rapidly growing aquaculture industry on wild fisheries, local markets, and food security in fishing villages.
