The Coastal Women's Shellfish Aquaculture Development Workshop was held July 2015 in Zanzibar, Tanzania. The workshop organizers were Dr. Narriman Jiddawi from the University of Dar es Salaam Institute of Marine Sciences and Dr. Maria Haws from the University of Hawaii-Hilo. The workshop provided a venue for exchange of information between university personnel and participants from the Chaza Cooperative Society in Zanzibar on shellfish culture, product development, and marketing. The AquaFish Innovation Lab's work in Zanzibar is one of the program's many efforts to increase women's involvement in and access to aquaculture technologies and resources.
