Code Blue published an article by researchers from the University of Portsmouth about the importance of finding ways for small-scale fisher communities to be able to share solutions and ideas for common problems. The article highlights a few such exchanges, such as a video project facilitated by the EU-funded project SmartFish where members of various communities created educational videos which were then shared with other communities facing similar challenges.
Another example are the learning exchanges amongst fisher communities in Madagascar and Mozambique, which have led to communities in Mozambique setting up the first octopus closure based on learnings from Velondriake.
