The Feasibility of Creating Alternative Livelihoods for the Fishing Community Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project, completed for the World Wide Fund for Nature, identifies and evaluates alternative livelihoods for the fishermen in Hong Kong. We identified the skills that the fishermen posses and their willingness to switch careers. We evaluated government programs that are being offered for re-training and re-employment, and potential employers. We concluded that none of the careers researched are feasible for the fishermen. The WWF should let the older population of fishermen retire and focus more on the re-education of younger fishermen.
