A Pemban village fisher committee shares their success – Kamati ya uvuvi yenye ufanisi


A community in Pemba, Zanzibar share the successes of their fishers committee through a community film.

What makes effective community fisheries conservation?

Zanzibar coastal communities interact with the ocean daily; numerous livelihoods are dependent on the ocean. Kukuu village have not been afraid to try new approaches in managing their marine resources and would like to share their successes with other communities.  They want to show what can be achieved, and the necessary building blocks for those successes.

This video documents the work of Kukuu Shehia Fisher Committee, the committee is responsible for village decisions for marine resource use. The video describes their work and why they have been so effective. The film is a collaboration between the Fisher Committee and a professional Tanzanian film-maker, Hans Cosmas Ngoteya; scripted and directed by the fishers and filmed by the film team.

The film was made as part of our project with ZANSASP. Our partners for the work completed in Kukuu are Fauna & Flora International.
