Ocean life doesn’t live in a bubble—if you want to take care of one fish species, you also have to preserve where it lives and understand the other animals it interacts with.

This big picture approach to marine conservation is called the ecosystem approach to fisheries. It's a question of striking the right balance between the social and ecological. How do we compromise so that our marine resources are available for future generations?

What does striking a balance mean to you?Leave your answers in the comments below. #EAFstrikeabalance

Have you heard about the StewardFish project?

It's a great initiative with the goal of making fisherfolk better stewards of our marine resources. The formal title of the project is 'Developing Organisational Capacity for Ecosystem Stewardship and Livelihoods in Caribbean small-scale fisheries (StewardFish) Project’.

It aims to empower fisherfolk throughout value chains to engage in resource management, decision-making process and sustainable livelihoods, with strengthened institutional support at all levels.

Regional partners include Caribbean Natural Resources Institute Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism @UWI-CIRP Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies #StewardFish #EAFstrikeabalance.
