Through our capacity building initiatives, we empower fishermen by providing them with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to ensure safe working environments, efficient operations, and effective emergency preparedness.

By fostering a culture of safety and continuous learning, the FISH Safety Foundation is dedicated to creating a sustainable future for the fishing community.


Training and Education Programs: Enhancing Knowledge and Skills

We understand the importance of ensuring the safety of workers and the sustainability of the fishing industry. Through our comprehensive training programs, workshops, and resources, we equip fishermen from around the globe with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify hazards, implement safety protocols, and respond effectively in emergency situations. By prioritizing safety, we aim to create a culture of awareness and responsibility that protects both fishermen and the marine environment.

Regulatory Compliance and Best Practices: Ensuring Safety and Sustainability

Compliance is crucial for the long-term success and sustainability of the fishing industry. We offer capacity building services that help fishing organisations navigate complex regulatory frameworks and ensure compliance with local, national, and international standards. Our team guides through understanding and implementing regulations related to fishing practices, vessel safety, crew training, and environmental protection. By strengthening regulatory compliance, we support the growth of responsible fishing practices that protect marine resources and promote a level playing field for all industry stakeholders.

Our Learning Application

The use of train-the-trainer learning is of utmost importance for our capacity building services at FSF, especially when it comes to training fishermen.

By employing this approach, we are able to empower individuals within the fishing community to become trainers themselves, enhancing their knowledge and skills in areas such as safety practices and emergency response. This not only helps us reach a larger number of fishermen but also ensures that the training is delivered in a culturally relevant and relatable manner.

By equipping trainers with the necessary tools and resources, we can foster a sustainable learning environment where fishermen can continuously build upon their expertise and share it with others in their community. Ultimately, train the trainer learning enables us to create a ripple effect of knowledge and improve the safety standards within the fishing industry as a whole.

Progressive Monitoring and Evaluation

We are committed to measuring the impact of our capacity building initiatives. Through robust monitoring and evaluation mechanisms, we assess the effectiveness of our programs, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to refine our strategies.

By continuously monitoring progress and adapting our approach, we can ensure that our capacity building efforts remain relevant, impactful, and aligned with the evolving needs of the fishing industry.
