Secure Fisheries Project Manager Jamal Hassan visited the Kismayo area of Somalia in December 2021 to discuss the potential for cooperative management with communities and government officials.
As we work to create a sustainable planet, we must equally prioritize sustainable peace. Our work in Somali fishing communities has shed light on ways science and natural resource conservation come together to reduce conflict and build community and environmental resilience.
Secure Fisheries Project Kalluun, a partnership with four Somali universities and Somali fisheries ministries, aims to enhance fisheries data collection throughout the region and train the next generation of Somali marine scientists. As participants in the project, students gain training from Secure Fisheries and hands-on experience conducting routine catch data collection at their local landing site.
