Mission & Vision

We aim to be an effective national alliance that brings together various institutions like non-governmental organizations (NGO's), People's Organizations (PO's), the government, the academe, donors, media and the business sector to respond to the needs of the member sanctuaries and the bigger community of small fishers.

The word "Pamana" is a native term for "heritage." We have deemed it apt for our orgainzation because it is the heritage of a sustainable livelihood and rich waters that we would like to leave for our children.
Thus, it is our vision to have a community of small fishers, united, principled and educated who will sustainably protect, manage and enrich sanctuaries and seas to the needs of the future generations.
This is our dream.
