Ocean warmth, seaweed scarcity threaten Fiji's fisherwomen's livelihoods
SUVA, Fiji (Reuters) – Karen Vusisa has been struggling to find a decent catch of a favourite Fijian edible seaweed, amid concerns that ocean temperatures have hit harvests and are threatening livelihoods of fisherwomen like her.
Like many others, Vusisa, 52, is managing to collect only about half as much of the seaweed, nama, as she once did. She must hunt for it over wider areas, spending more time at sea.
'We are struggling to find some spot for a lot of nama,' Sera Baleisasa, another Fijian fisherwoman, told Reuters.
