In order to ensure sustainable fishing practices, it is highly important to understand current fishing practices employed by the fishing communities in and around Pondicherry. To enable this, we plan to work in tandem with fishing communities to ensure safety of the oceans. By incorporating the vast knowledge and skills possessed by the local fisherfolk, we involve them in artificial reef construction. We are working on outreach programs to engage with fisherfolk about ways to ensure sustainability of local fisheries.
