    About This Project

    Kenyan coral reef sustainability is threatened today by, among other things, unintended overfishing. One proven simple, low cost solution is to introduce escape gaps into fish trapping gear. This will reduce overfishing, influence ecosystem health, and improve fisherman livelihood. This project helps to scale important work with Kenyan fishing communities to promote the use of escape gaps, and evaluate their impact when used alongside different localized fish trapping gear.
