Fishing for Development

Every morning fishermen return with their catch from Lake Victoria in Tanzania. However, poor handling practices onshore result in the fish being damaged and their value diminished.



Three young Tanzania fisheries experts are trying to find a solution with the support from the United Nations University Fisheries Training Programme (UNU-FTP).



UNU-FTP offers applied postgraduate-level training in various areas of the fisheries sector for practicing professionals in less developed countries.



As an interdisciplinary programme, the UNU-FTP draws expertise from both academia and the fishing industry to provide fellows with a holistic and meaningful perspective on fisheries in their home countries.
