SSF Highlight: Fisher Voices Video Series

SSF Hub Presents: Fisher Voices

Video Series

As part of the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, the SSF Hub has been collecting video submissions from small-scale fishers, fish workers and community members around the world across different topics. These individual videos are a way for fishers and fish workers to directly share their opinions, concerns and needs based on the SSF Hub Regional Webinars or other topics of their choosing.

Watch some of the Fisher Voices videos below and be sure to check out the rest of the series at the links provided below.
