A video introduction to Future Fishers – an NGO in Trinidad and Tobago that seeks to empower local stakeholders to understand the value and benefits of managing coastal and marine resources sustainably

Future Fishers is a non-governmental organisation; founded in 2017 and based on the northeast coast of Trinidad, that seeks to empower local stakeholders to understand the value and benefits of managing coastal and marine resources sustainably. In 2019, Future Fishers undertook an assessment of market and environmental vulnerabilities and recommendations for small-scale production of smoked and salted fish on Trinidad鈥檚 East coast, including the communities of Guayaguayare, Mayaro and Toco. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Future Fishers was able to do great work on this project and completed it in July 2020. Their work was made possible with a small grant from the Caribbean Sea Innovation Fund (CarSIF) facility, which was established by the Caribbean natural Resources Institute (CANARI) to address priority needs and actions in the Caribbean on marine and coastal resources governance and management. The small grants are a key component of the regional three-year project, Powering Innovations in Civil Society and Enterprises for Sustainability (PISCES) in the Caribbean which is being funded by the European Union.
