The issue of the invisibility and lack of recognition of women’s role in fisheries and aquaculture is a world wide phenomenon. ICSF has been working on valorising and seeking recognition of women’s roles in fisheries and aquaculture since its inception (1984). Over the past two decades this work has focussed on: (1) supporting national-level workshops, studies and organizing work with women in fisheries; (2) building and supporting (global and regional) networks, including through workshops and conferences; (3) documentation and dissemination of information on women in fisheries related issues, through specific publications like Yemaya, and through the website.
