For the fishing towns that rely on the fishermen of Mogadishu, fishing is a significant source of revenue. The purpose of this study was to gather information on the economic and societal circumstances of these fishing communities in order to identify pressing problems that could be resolved in order to preserve their way of life and secure their participation in the conservation of fish species. Using a questionnaire distributed to the fishermen living along the Mogadishu Coast, information was gathered in a single "snapshot" study. The study illustrates that all of the women employed at the Liido, Urubo, and Abaydhahn landing sites are traders who are smaller than males in business, and it also demonstrates that most fishermen do not own their own land., Bank loans may not be available to fishermen without their own land, and the absence of a strong community-based organization in the fisheries forces poor fishermen to rely on other sources of income, such as wages in other industries like agriculture, construction, etc., or engage in destructive fishing techniques to survive during closed seasons. To finance the purchase of fishing-related supplies, some fishermen borrow money from wealthier fishermen and other local moneylenders. Their ongoing debt to the conventional financial system and a lack of inputs are the key barriers to raising their standard of living.
