Migrant Fishers

Migrant fishing is major feature of East African fisheries, highlighted by growing conflicts between travelling fishers who often use more ‘advanced’, efficient and destructive fishing gears than more traditional local fishers.

CORDIO has two initiatives studying migrant fishing in the region – a MASMA-funded research program led by Beatric Crona, Innocent Wanyonyi, Sergio Rosendo and Jacob Ochiewo, and Innocent Wanyonyi’s PhD research based at Kalmar University, Sweden.

The MASMA project has just finished, and its final report and policy brief are available here.
