400 fishermen


As mentioned in the description of the Saida fishing net project which SEAL funded a year earlier, Lebanon's fishermen are among the country's most impoverished communities.

In this case, SEAL purchased a total of 4,000 nets to 400 Fishermen of Tyre, in partnership with Tyre's Fishermen Union, the Development for People and Nature Association/DPNA and the municipality of Tyre. The distribution of 10 nets to each fisherman significantly helps them in providing for their families.

This project is a part of SEAL’s FISHING NET DISTRIBUTION program, which distributes large-mesh nets among under-served fishing communities to increase their productivity in an environmentally sustainable way.
