Challenges And Solutions For Indigenous Fisheries in South Africa

Indigenous Rights Radio producer Shaldon Ferris (KhoiSan) investigates the impacts of fishing regulations on Indigenous groups who have fished as a part of their livelihoods for centuries. The Convention on Biological Diversity, an international agreement which has inspired the implementation of many current fishing regulations, specifically discusses the importance of collaborating with Indigenous communities in order to preserve cultural knowledge in the pursuit of ecological preservation. However, species conservation practices still impact small-scale fisheries and Indigenous fisher-folk's lives and livelihoods.
