Stewardfish Caribbean Project Document

The seven countries participating in the Developing Organizational Capacity for Ecosystem Stewardship and Livelihoods in Caribbean Small-Scale Fisheries(StewardFish) project – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines have a high dependence on fisheries resources, whether for income generation, nutrition and food security. Fisheries degradation and over-exploitation are causes of major concern within the region. Due to the high dependence in the Caribbean on marine resources, the high vulnerability of fisherfolk, the concentration of fisheries infrastructure in the coastal zone, plus increasing intensity of extreme-weather events, effective adaptation measures for the fisheries sector are critical for sustainable livelihoods, improved food security and conservation of marine resources.
