Any gender-specific information about the investment and its impacts

Comment on gender-related info
Around 3,000 fishing families were affected as a result of mangrove destruction, many of which are women fisherfolks who use the mangroves to extract seashells and shrimps for household consumption. Most of the fishworkers employed in the JLV Shrimp Farm are men, and most of the work is seasonal, meaning it is not a regular source of income.
