    This description of Nalini Nayak's work was prepared when Nalini Nayak was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1990.
    Nalini Nayak (India 1989) has, over the last two decades, played a central role in helping the small scale, traditional fisherman of Kerala's coast develop their first marketing co-ops and unions. Now she's turning her organizational skill and substantive expertise to helping all the many actors involved work out how to manage the land as well as ocean environment in order to ensure the fisheries do not continue to produce less and less.
