Sharing and collaboration with fishermen and concerned citizens of The Bahamas is very important to Community Conch. As an organization, we seek opportunities to further our outreach on the islands where our work is based to improve our understanding of the issues, to provide education, and to share the information we have with local communities.
We hope to continue to improve our ability to make these connections with the public and especially with the commercial and subsistence fishermen whose livelihoods depend on the sustainability of the conch fishery. We are currently developing a citizen science project in collaboration with Bahamian conservation organizations, and a sustainable seafood marketing campaign in partnership with an Bahamian restaurateur. We are actively seeking support for these programs.
