Ayoke, Philippines

Client: Environmental Defense Fund, 2016

Dependent on fishing for their livelihoods, Ayoke’s fishermen are alarmed by the scarcity of fish. Together with EDF, and RARE, they decide to collaborate to create managed-access fishing areas, which they know have worked in other areas. And now, fishermen are excited to be leading the effort to save fisheries, as opposed to being blamed for overfishing.
