ABALOBI harnesses community-led technology, traceability, markets & data to support regenerative small-scale fisheries

ABALOBI – meaning fisher in the isiXhosa language – is a South African-based non-profit organisation with global reach. Through our world-first fisheries improvement technologies and programmes, we strive to poise small-scale fisheries for ecological, economic and social sustainability. Our intent is to develop thriving, equitable, resilient and sustainable small-scale fishing communities through the application of data and Technology For Good within fisheries rebuilding and social entrepreneurship frameworks. We are a fisher-led enabler, development intermediary and accelerator.

ABALOBI helps small-scale fishers to derive a legitimate and improved livelihood from catching, processing and selling ecologically resilient fish species through fair market structures.
