Promoting Fish for All, and Fish for Ever

The post tsunami needs and vulnerabilities of the coastal communities of Tamil Nadu paved way for MSSRF to establish an exclusive training centre – Fish for All Centre, for promoting sustainable fishery development with active involvement of fishers and their families in Poompuhar village of coastal Tamil Nadu with the support of the Tata Trusts. The centre engages in intensive training for fishermen and women from fishery sector officials, and now has emerged as a platform for multi-stakeholders for undertaking both practical actions needed for sustainable fishing, and to influence public policy that aimed at sustainable management and protection of marine and coastal ecosystems. The Centre focuses on three major areas- (i) Sustainable small-scale capture fisheries and resource enhancement; (ii) Culture fisheries resource enhancement and management, and (iii) Post-harvest management.
