On 16th of July, after attending two conferences, Maria returned to Accra to continue her fieldwork for two months. The data collection started in Sakumono lagoon (in Tema) where she first met the key-informants with whom she already established good contacts during her previous fieldworks. However, she also interviewed fishermen and fishmongers, did group discussions with farmers and followed the everyday life of one the Forestry Commission officers. After a short trip to Cape Coast, where she visited the Centre for Coastal Management, Maria returned back to her second case study called Tsokomey, located in the Densu delta. In this case study, she mainly worked with fisher women who are harvesting oysters and employ sustainable community based management strategies.
