MetadataShow full item record
The United States Agency for International Development (USAid) launched a new partnership with Manila-based Futuristic Aviation and Maritime Enterprise, Inc. (Fame) to promote sustainable fisheries and boost livelihoods in southern Mindanao. Together with Fame, USAid will begin installing transponders on the vessels of over two dozen small-scale fishers from the municipalities of Glan, Kiamba, and Maasim in Sarangani province. USAid is implementing this project through its five-year, P1.04 billion USAid Oceans project, which, in partnership with the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, promotes sustainable fisheries, combats illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing, and conserves marine biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific region.
