This series of two-page briefs highlights some of the new technologies and processes available, in order to inspire practitioners and policy-makers to put them to use. Better information about how to sell their
catches and where and how to borrow money
is improving fishers’ livelihoods. When they
know how fish market chains and distribution
work they have better chances of getting good
prices for their catches. It’s also very helpful for
them to know where they can borrow money at
reasonable rates.
