Datça-Bozburun Peninsula is one of the most important SPAs of Turkey where artisanal fisheries have been practiced intensively for 3 generations.
There are fisherwomen working alone in the Datça-Bozburun Peninsula.
There are 5 fishery cooperatives in the area which can embrace fisherwomen.
As of yet there has been no national or international project targeting fisherwomen in the area.
The fact that fisherwomen are key shareholders in the preservation, monitoring and management of the area is being neclected.
Fisherwomen and their families are suffering from economical depression as a natural consequence of illegal and overfishing.
