This description of Claudionor da Silva's work was prepared when Claudionor da Silva was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
As a teenager Claudionor Alexandre Barbosa da Silva became a fisherman out of necessity when his family's fortunes took a turn for the worse. After years dedicated to helping his fellow fishers gain greater civil and political rights, he is now introducing a cooperative system that extends their participation through the chain of processing and marketing their catch.
