The theme of the GAF8 M.C. Nandeesha Photo Contest was “Shaping the future: Gender Justice for Sustainable Aquaculture and Fisheries”. The award is named in honor of the late Dr M.C. Nandeesha whose tireless efforts were fundamental to initiating the series of women/gender in fisheries and aquaculture events through the Asian Fisheries Society (see Wikipedia). Following are the photo entries received.
