Among the 120 million people who work in wild capture fisheries and post-harvest sectors, nearly 50 percent are women according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Despite women’s key role in the sector, there is often limited awareness of their diverse contributions. Our Shared Seas spoke with Talanoa Consulting Principal Consultant, Dr. Sangeeta Mangubhai to discuss where women’s contributions in the fisheries sector are frequently overlooked as well as best practices for ensuring that both women and men can fully contribute to the solutions space for fisheries management.
