Strengthening community-led management of small-scale ﬁsheries in Sulawesi, Indonesia
BlueVentures (BV) is a marine conservation organisation that puts people first. It supports coastal fishers in remote and rural communities to rebuild fisheries, restore ocean life and build lasting pathways to prosperity. BV’s work began two decades ago in Madagascar’s remote coastal communities and is growing globally. Across more than a dozen countries, BV is partnering with traditional fishers and community organisations to design, scale, strengthen and sustain fisheries management and conservation at the community level. BV brings partners together in networks to advocate for reform, and share tools and best practices to support fishing communities across the globe.
Since 2016 Blue Ventures has been supporting a growing network of community-based organisations across Indonesia to establish locally led fisheries management and conservation efforts.
With support from the Levine Family Foundation, Blue Ventures is providing technical assistance and financial support to local organisations working to strengthen and scale-up community efforts to rebuild coastal fisheries and protect critically important ecosystems, including biodiverse reefs.
