Though the project focus was on the fishing industry we recognized that the women and other community members are involved in other economic activities and mainly riz-agriculture. This meant that they have additional economic activities that needed to be taken into account. Recognizing these additional economic activities generated more interest towards our project. For example instead of organizing meetings based on the fishing activity we organized them taking into account the time they spent in their farms. When needed we met them in their farms and participated in their farming activities.
