Ikiwa Abdulla heads out at lowtide to gather shellfish in Fumba, Zanzibar.  Abdulla is a participant in a shellfish program developed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and partly funded by Island Creek Oysters, an oyster company in Duxbury, MA, that hopes to teach women in Zanzibar how to cultivate shellfish. While women already harvest shellfish, the program will help replenish the already overfished stocks of oysters and clams and promote economic opportunities for women in rural villages in Zanzibar.
