Introduction

Earlier this year, Evening Echo reporter Helen Walsh travelled to Tanzania having been awarded funding from the Simon Cumbers Media Challenge Fund. The purpose of the trip was to discover the challenges faced by fishing communities, the factors threatening natural resources and the role of women in the fishing industry.

This blog is designed to coincide with a six-day series running in the Evening Echo newspaper from Monday, May 10. The series takes readers from Mwanza on the shores of Lake Victoria to the balmy beaches of Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean. The blog features additional information as well as photographs taken by Diane Cusack during the trip.
