ENJ Reporting on Fisheries in Belize, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico (Fully Funded)
The workshop will be conducted in English. Participating journalists will learn about fisheries management issues at the local, country and regional levels, including threats to fishery populations, the perspectives of local fishers, current measures in place to monitor and manage fisheries, proposed solutions to prevent decline and more. Expert speakers from the Mesoamerican region and elsewhere will join in-person or virtually to answer questions and lead sessions.
In addition to classroom sessions, one day will be spent on a field trip to a relevant location. The specific details of the field trip have yet to be confirmed, but it will allow participating journalists to better understand fisheries issues from a local on-ground perspective.
