Fishermen lament marginalization
MetadataShow full item record
Small fisherfolk organizations from 15 countries deplore the massive marginalization of small-scale fishing and are calling for the overhaul of international and national policies on fishing. Fisheries programs have increased production worldwide but at the expense of small fishermen, said participants at the International Conference on Fisheries and Globalization at the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center here. Antonio Tujan Jr., cochair of the People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty, one of the organizers of the conference, said fisheries production, including in Philippines, has grown rapidly but has impoverished the small fishermen.
