Taking a look at Ambakivao’s shrimp cooperatives!
This is not an opportunity to be missed, according to Armand, a fisherman in the village of Ambakivao. “Together,” he says, “we can offer more in terms of quantity. This is beneficial for collectors who buy in large quantities, and every fisherman can benefit from it too” The next step for them? To meet with regional and natural collectors such as Copefrito, Sopemo, or Madafish, at the Regional Crab Workshop in Morondava, July 26th - 27th, 2018.
All fishermen are members of the “Lovainjafy” community (translates as “to the future generations”), which manages 2935 ha of mangroves around the village. Working towards the conservation of mangroves, ecological restoration, solar electrification, and honey production, they are a shining example of sustainable and successful management!
