Kayar, Senegal

Blog Africa Unchained has a post about Senegalese fishermen coming together to prevent depletion of their fish and seafood stock by establishing a community-based system that limits the amount of catch and restricts catching certain species.

In this way, they manage to increase their profits and protect the environment.

I enjoyed reading about these guys' endeavors. They're trying to make things work there, too, y'know.

And I want to know about it.

G-d bless!

Chaya, I'll check it out the blog site.

At least the Senegalese are finding ways to replace greed with commonsense fishing practices, protecting their fish and seafood stock without killing their neighbor or destroying a vital food source.

We all can take a lesson from their willingness to cooperate for the common good.
