Indian Ocean Trepang works closely with 3 NGOs to support every community we work with.

Together with our partner NGOs - from the very beginning - we select villages and families to partner with, and work throughout the development, financing and maintenance of a community of sea cucumber farmers.

NGOs provide training, assistance and awareness to fishermen villages on:

  • Aquaculture
  • Wild stock depletion and conservation measures
  • The dangers of deep compressed air sea fishing
  • Savings management
  • Drinking water wells construction
  • Health
  • Family planning
  • Children's education
  • Women's rights and gender equality

If you think communities you work with could farm sea cucumbers, get in touch!
