The Secure Fisheries team traveled to Laasqoray to meet with the fishing community and collaboratively plan the agenda for 2023. Annual community planning sessions are intended to facilitate the community-led approach by encouraging community members to identify their priorities each year. In Laasqoray, residents wish to meet training needs for fiberglass boat repair, boat mechanics, and fishing techniques.
Secure Fisheries staff also informed the community about the process and principles of the fisheries co-management association establishment, including how to better bargain with the government on the power sharing agreement. The Laasqoray power sharing agreement is planned to take place in Bosaso in mid-February
