Andrew Johnston from the Artisanal Fishers Association shared his country experiences from the Republic of South Africa during the International Conference onFisheries and Globalization in Iloilo, Philippines (19 – 21 September 2012).
South Africa is a very picturesque and beautiful country, blessed with a rich diversity of natural resources, in particular marine resources. Our coast line has three zones: in the East coast (Indian ocean) the mighty Agulhas current brings warm waters; on the West coast (Atlantic ocean) the Benquela current brings cold waters; and in the South a temperate zone which contains high proportion of species unique to South Africa.

Resist Corporate Capture of Fisheries, Build Sustainable Fisheries for the People
21 September 2012
We, representatives of 35 organizations of traditional small-scale fishermen and fisherwomen from marine and inland fisheries and their advocates, from 15 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America met from 19 – 21 September 2012 in Iloilo, Philippines to discuss the destructive impacts of globalization and to bring back traditional knowledge systems and practices for sustainable fisheries that uphold the rights and welfare of small-scale fisherfolk and all other oppressed and marginalized sectors of society, and strengthen international solidarity.
Small-scale fisherfolk feed the world. We are the backbone of the fisheries sector. We contribute to local and national food security using traditional fishing practices that take into account the sustainability of the environment for the present and future generations. Half of us are women who take on the burden of raising our families and providing food on the table.
