TMSA Case Study - Supporting Artisanal Fishermen in Mozambique

This case story, the second in the TMSA case story series, focuses on TMSA's work with the Instituto Nacional De Inspeccao Do Pescado (INIP) in Mozambique. Working with INIP, TMSA has helped train artisanal fishermen in Mozambique about local as well as international fishing standards - equipping them with more sustainable methods and helping them access lucrative markets. This is just one of the ways in which TMSA has helped fishermen sustain their livelihoods in often challenging circumstances.
