Summary for Project title: R7969: Fish distribution from coastal
communities - market and credit access issues.
Better information about how to sell their catches and where and how to
borrow money is improving fishers' livelihoods. When they know how
market chains and fish distribution work they have better chances of
getting good prices for their catches. It's also very helpful for them
to know where they can borrow money at reasonable rates. Participatory
methods of collecting data have already proved useful in understanding
markets and distribution chains for fish in Bangladesh. Governments not
only in Bangladesh, but also in Cambodia and West Africa, and
international development agencies are adopting these techniques to
review and plan fisheries development. Fishing communities in South
Asia, and East and West Africa stand to benefit particularly from better
information on markets and credit.
