Since the expansion of our Fish Conservation project into Salima and Dedza Districts in Malawi, our team have been busy training Umbrella Fish Conservation Committees and Beach Village Committees (BVC) there.

The nine Umbrella Fish Conservation Committees will make sure that the 103 BVCs are doing their job successfully and offer guidance when needed. Therefore, training them well is vitally important to ensure the success of fisheries management in the District.

Local fishermen in these areas have welcomed the introduction of the project and are working with the committees to report the use of illegal fishing gears and make sure that the closed season is being observed to protect fish in the breeding season.
