INTRODUCTION: The marine fisheries sector in Tanzania is largely small scale, male dominated with majority using traditional fishing crafts. The fisheries play an important role in rural and coastal communities and it provides a vital source of food, contributes to livelihoods sustainability and nutrition security and foreign exchange earnings.  However, the fisheries have been facing continuous challenge with continued illegal fishing practices and increasing costs for ensuring compliance.

The tools will focus on recommended gear types, fishing vessels, fish processing type and methods in order to transform local practices and attain sustainable fisheries.  It is important to note that, very little is known about legal and illegal fishing gears and why some gears are categorized as illegal particularly by youth, new entrants and migrant fishers.
