Timor Woman Collects Fish at Sunset

As in all coastal communities in Timor-Leste, the ocean both feeds and sustains villagers. For generations coastal communities in Asia have relied on a wide range of fish for their livelihoods. However, fish stocks in South-East Asia are being significantly depleted due to illegal fishing and overfishing.
