ABOUT US

The Oceans Alive team collectively has over 60 years of experience in community-based management of marine resources in East Africa. We share our knowledge with coastal fishing communities to:

  • safeguard biodiversity

  • ensure the sustainability of marine ecosystems

  • protect fisheries and coral reefs 

  • secure and improve livelihoods

  • protect the rights of small scale fishermen and their families 

We do this by working with all stakeholder to create and implement Collaborative Managed Areas

We have seen the value and profound impact of peer-to-peer exchange. This is one of the approaches we use to empower and strengthen capacity for coastal communities to: 

  • overcome adverse effects of climate change

  • restore the marine environment

  • improve depleted fish stocks

  • minimise the impact of development projects and pollution

  • create resilience in the face of an uncertain world

  • effectively manage a sustainable fishery
