Artisanal Fishing

FishermenArtisanal fishing is small scale industrial fishing. The captain of an artisanal fishing boat is often the owner or part-owner along with a family member who may also be part of the crew. Boats usually return to port each day or after only a few days at sea.

In some areas imports of foreign fish have led to a drop in local prices. Fresh fish caught locally cannot compete with cheap imports. Artisanal fishers are at the mercy of fluctuating prices, weather and the hazards of the sea.

Among seafarers, the fishers are the most forgotten ones. We must stand by them, and their families in complete solidarity whether they are industrial, artisanal or coastal fishing communities. The traditional fishing communities must be protected and given a voice in their affairs. All fishing agreements that favour one group over another must be denounced.
