The ocean covers the major part of our planet, accommodating a quarter of all
known species, influencing our climate and offering a coastal habitat for half of
the world’s population – and despite this we are destroying it.
The overuse of the ocean leads to the destruction of the ecological balance.
Simultaneously the coastal populations of the world lose their source of income.
This has catastrophic impact in the short and long term.
But is it still possible to find an alternative to intensive exploitation of marine resources?
In Zanzibar, the local fishing community of Jambiani is trying to preserve the biodiversity of the ocean’s fauna.
Bahari Salama is a docufilm, co-financed by donotors and through a crowdfunding campaign, which will show how it is possible to find an alternative route to the intensive exploitation of our seas. Through projects that protect both the environment and the local economies of fishing populations.
