dc.description.abstract Working with fishing communities in Barotse (Barotse floodplain, Zambia) and Lake Chilwa (Malawi), and other partners, the project will analyze fish value chains, including the differing roles of men and women, to understand how losses occur in fish volume, nutrient content, and economic value. Researchers will evaluate post-harvest fish processing practices to improve their effectiveness, reduce losses, and promote greater equity among the men and women who work in the fisheries sector. Poor processing and management are major factors, resulting in losses worth up to US$5 billion each year. en
