fish voyage

safe fishing for a safe tomorrow

sustainable fishing practices and community fish farming promotion. larger market access to local fishermen

Use Case

River State Port Harcourte Nigeria, Rumoulumeni community 8 out of every 10 fishermen earn just a little to sustain life and family. traditional techniques have resulted to wild and uncontrolled fishing. without proper tools and modern practice sustainability is highly threatened. in Cameroon 80% graduated fisheries expert do not actually do the fishing, they sort after paperwork jobs leaving the fishing to unschooled local fishers. Marine fishing in Mauritania has been monopolized by large European trawls leaving the locals to scavenge. this means doing whatever it takes to get fish out of the water. rural families can barely afford to have fish in their daily meals, this is mainly due to the high price, this leads to post harvest lost in 50% of the case for cold store operators.

Potential

equipping African communities a community at a time with our sustainable fishing techniques and inland fishing supplementation for increased fish supply we intend to empower more than 1000 communities across the continent. little drops of impact when put together will create the global change needed to secure our fish and provide fish to the least family.

Business Case

Our model generates business on two fronts, from training, equipment provision and sales commission from our platform.

Objectives:

  1. train and equip at least 50 fishermen with the right skills on fishing, and inland fishing each year.
  2. institute community engaged inland projects in two rural communities each year.
  3. expose the fish harvest of fishermen to buyers from other location enabling to them to close at least 2 fishing orders each week
