Training of Trainers (ToT) is an international scheme, initiated and developed in collaboration with our partners the Asosiasi Perikanan Pole & Line dan Handline (AP2HI), Masyarakat dan Perikanan Indonesia (MDPI) and the Maldives’ Research Centre (MCR), and supported by our member Migros. The scheme, which is being rolled out across Indonesia and the Maldives, aims to train a representative from numerous processors in the topics of sustainable fisheries; product quality and handling; bait handling; safety at sea and the MSC standard and certification process.

The intent is that after a series of training sessions and an exam, the trainees have the qualification, tools and resources they need to share their knowledge with their company, and the trainees will become the trainers. Through this practice IPNLF hopes to extend the reach and engagement with educational schemes, improving the lives of the fishers, and enhancing the sustainable use of tuna resources.
