Women in artisanal fisheries in Fiji – A snapshot

Written By NAFSO on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 | 12:28:00 PM

Women who engage in fisheries in Fiji are, as Dr. Bidesi summarized, mostly either in subsistence fishing; small scale commercial fishing; or employed in the international fishing industry. Regarding the second type of fishing, artisanal small scale commercial fishing, you can meet many women selling fish and other seafood in the municipal markets in Fiji such as in Suva.Every week, selling starts on Thursdays or Fridays.
