Client Description

The Centre for Coastal Health (CCH) is a non-profit which identifies and understands the interactions of human, animal and environmental health. Culture based fisheries in Sri Lanka constitute an important livelihood for people living near perpetual and seasonal tanks, providing inexpensive protein, income and employment for rural people. Sri Lankan rural communities rely heavily on state sponsored activities for access to fish fingerlings. An effective mechanism is needed to support the existing system of fingerling production to increase culture based fisheries in tanks. By using D-Sight Web (the collaborative platform offered by D-Sight), CCH was able to involve all the stakeholders into the decision-making, analyze the different production systems and understand the reasons behind each of the final scores and ranking. Following a data-driven process allowed CCH to conduct the workshops more easily and reach a consensus decision. The analysis showed that culture based fisheries stakeholders, preferred a National and/or Provincial collaborative approach to breeding and nurturing of fish to the post larvae or fry stage, with post larvae or fry to fingerling rearing being conducted by: National and provincial hatcheries; Community based organizations; Private pond owners.
