Description

The Indian Castle Fisherfolk Association (ICFFA) on the island of Nevis in St Kitts and Nevis was able to expand its seamoss farm – thereby providing a greater source of sustainable income to fisherfolk in the Gingerland community, thanks to a small grant of US$17,650 in April 2019.

The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute provided support to the ICFFA via a small grant under the C-SAP project, and mentoring provided under the regional PISCES project.

ICFFA’s increased seamoss production was key to helping mitigate the financial impacts of the reduced catch presently experienced by fisherfolk in the Gingerland community due to climate change and other factors.
