Andavadoaka's marine resource is under threat from factors like climate change and over-fishing.
The village operates protected areas to allow fish stocks to replenish but commercial trawlers often ignore these restrictions. This is a major concern for the community because, as Strongoff puts it, "the sea is the most important thing in the world for the Vezo. For most of us, it's our only source of income."
