Youth apprentice for pole&line program was initiated for the request of many youngsters across the country to experience pole&line fishing. There are differences of how different atolls practice pole&line fishing. Techniques and methods of pole&line differs. Therefore, Dhivehi Masverin association invited 3 youngsters from different atolls. For the selection process we rallied social media campaign. Those participants from, HDH, M & TH atoll experienced how Huvadhoo atoll fishermen do pole&line fishing.
The apprentice program was very successful. After carrying out the program as an NGO we realized the need for training programs for youths to get into our pole&line fishing industry. There are so much more that we can teach in our fishing industry. We need to document our traditional way of pole&line fishing.
