Mosquito nets being used as fishing net. These mosquito nets are given out by USAID and other aid organizations to help families fight malaria, which is endemic in Malawi. Women then sell the nets to fishermen in the market for about 500 kwacha each, and they are sewn together into long nets to catch usipe. The trouble is that the usipa that get caught in these nets are often too small and have not reached adulthood. Fishing using mosquito nets wipes out huge populations of young fish and devalues the catch at market. Ripple is working with fish conservation committees to help catch fishermen who are still using these nets and fine them to help regrow the usipa population and bring in more valuable catches.
