Our latest research provides the first robust scientific evidence that overfishing is taking place in small-scale fisheries in Madagascar, signalling a serious threat to ocean health and vulnerable coastal communities.
New research published this week has shown that community-led marine conservation can increase the size of fish populations − a critical objective for conservationists working to protect coral reefs.
Blue Ventures’ work with community mangrove conservation in Madagascar features in a list of natural climate solution case studies from The Nature Conservancy.
