Case study on the Liamuiga Seamoss Group – Enhancing and promoting the seamoss industry in St. Kitts and Nevis to promote social empowerment and food and nutrition security

The Liamuiga Sea Moss Group (LSG) in Conaree Village, St. Kitts, was formed in 2017 by a group of agro-processors and fisherfolk involved in the production of seamoss products from seamoss grown in the wild. Seamoss farming was identified as great alternative livelihood to fishing, as a source of sustainable income in fishing communities. The LSG used a small grant聽of US$35,170, provided in March 2019 by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) under the C-SAP project, to enhance and promote their small business, including expanding their seamoss plots and setting up their own small processing facility. CANARI also provided mentoring support to the LSG under the regional PISCES project.
