Fish for tomorrow on Lake Malawi

play a vital role in the fishing industry

Women aren’t often seen on Lake Malawi in canoes or plank boats catching fish. Nevertheless, they play a vital role in the fishing industry as the main processors and sellers of fish.

Some women are even boat owners and hire fishers to catch fish for them. For this reason, Ripple Africa, a UK based charity working for the last sixteen years in Malawi, is making sure that women play a key role in their Fish for Tomorrow project, which aims to reverse the decline of fish stocks in Africa’s third largest lake.
