Coastal Connections – Episode 3 – Empowering the future: women and youth in fisheries

There is something fishy about gender norms… Fishers = men, women, boys and girls.

In this episode, we hear from two super women who are breaking down barriers out on their fishing boats! Listen to hear about how female leadership brings creative new exposures for youth to participate in fishing activities and culture! Let’s not allow these traditional skills to disappear in our coastal communities. Let’s support the empowerment of the next generation!
