Hery Lova Razafimamonjiraibe – Blue Ventures National Technical Advisor for Livelihoods in Madagascar – led a webinar hosted by Reef Resilience Network about Madagascar’s community-based sea cucumber farms.
Hery, who is based in Antananarivo, has nearly a decade of experience in the community conservation space. He presented an overview of how Blue Ventures’ community-based aquaculture model was developed in partnership with Indian Ocean Trepang (IOT). Hery shared lessons learned about how the model has evolved over the years and how it complements other fisheries management strategies led by Madagascar’s coastal communities.
