Tunisian women clam harvesters

Women’s clam harvesting material [Ruditapes decussatus

We often lament that women’s roles and contributions to fisheries are invisible. This wonderful FAO photogallery of Tunisian women harvesting clams [Ruditapes decussatus] (click here) is one example that contradicts us! It is accompanied also by a very thorough and informative YouTube video (click here) [in French] on the FAO YouTube Channel. The harvesters work from the port of Zaboussa, near near Sfax.

Highly recommended!
