  • Message from AFS Presidents  Ida Siason and Derek Staples  p. vi.

    Since 1998, the Asian Fisheries Society (AFS) has provided a venue for professionals and advocates on “women in fisheries,” and “gender in fisheries.”

  • To the Food and Agricultural Organization and many other supporters and contributors.

  •  Guest Editorial Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries : Moving the Agenda Forward Meryl J Williams, Marilyn Porter, Poh Sze Choo, Kyoko Kusakabe, Veikila Vuki, Nikita Gopal and Melba Bondad-Reantaso pp. 1-13

    Gender in aquaculture and fisheries is still under-researched but interest is increasing. This volume shows progress in visualizing women’s contribution to fisheries and aquaculture and also in structural analysis on value chains and institutions. Faced, however, with additional challenges such as climate change and economic integration, more nuanced analysis is now needed on ecological, economical, political and cultural systems. Factors such as class, age, ethnicity, race, caste, religion etc all come into play to define/condition gender relations.

RESEARCH PAPERS

Successful women entrepreneurs were aided by organizational structures, e.g., women’s Self Help Groups, family support and educational attainment. 

In SW Bangladesh, a Good Aquaculture Practice (GAP) project helped shrimp farmers meet export standards by involving female farmers and farming couples.
