Abalobi NPC


Abalobi arose from a collaboration between UCT, Small-scale Fishers of South Africa and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), which led to the creation of a suite of apps that can be used by small-scale fishers.  This allows fishers to report their catch using the app, which provides important feedback to DAFF and supports policy development.  The fishers are also able to participate in a marketing platform that connects them directly to retailers and restaurants.  The marketing platform development was funded by the Technology Innovation Agency Seed Fund.
