You can make a difference in any way that you want.


Your donation allows us to do a number of things: buy diagnostic medical devices to examine the fishermen's health conditions and determine predisposing factors to DCS; buy emergency tools and equipment (e.g. oxygen tanks) for the fishermen to treat themselves; deploy more dive recorders and researchers to do fieldwork; and more!

Your donation is tax deferred and can be made out to "The Regents of the University of California." UCLA is a public, nonprofit educational institution exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Please specify in the memo "For Artisanal Fishermen Divers". Please contact a PI for additional details.

You are a student, doctor, researcher, or fisherman who would like to join forces by sharing your data, experience, knowledge, and skills. You are an individual who knows about a group of fishermen who silently overcome or succumb to these risks everyday. We invite you to share your stories. Our vision is a global collaborative.
