FairFishing is a Danish-Somali NGO, working to create better lives on the Horn of Africa through fresh fish. By strengthening the local fishery, we are working to reduce poverty and help create local employment and income opportunities.
Our Board consists of hands-on practioners from the private sector, international development specialists, the marine and somali diaspora. Our daily activities are handled by a Copenhagen-based secretariat, and two local management teams in Berbera and Bosaso. Currently, we employ around 40 people locally. We value a strong local ownership – with the partners of the facilities involved in the operations.
The timeline below outlines how we got here.
