  • Description
  • ‘Off the hook’ is a local initiative in the Bay of Fundy in Long Island, Canada, to support small-scale, ground fish bottom hook and line fishermen. The project involves direct contact of fishermen with the consumer. Like other direct marketing programmes, CFSs can provide several benefits to small-scale fishers. This not only eliminates middle men and increases the income of the fisher people manifold but also delivers fresh fish to the consumers and on time.
    This short radio programme explains how this system works and how it benefits the community as a whole.
