Good #leadership of fisherfolk organisations (FFOs) is important to the success of collective action of small-scale fishers in achieving local, national and regional successes with respect to management, policy and stewardship in the fishing industry.

During our #LeadershipX3 Monday, Wednesday and Friday fisherfolk leadership posts we will share information collected in 2020 on fisherfolk organisation leadership characteristics.

This work, conducted by UWI-CERMES under the FAO-implemented #StewardFish project, contributes to knowledge and builds a “leadership profile” on fisherfolk organisation leaders in the region.
