Haaziq is an engineer striving to solve the problems faced by traditional fisheries in Malaysia. Through the #DemiLaut project, he advocates a circular approach to benefit traditional fishers by preserving their heritage and helping them contribute to the needs of food security in Malaysia. Haaziq is also strongly involved in enabling fishers to help mitigate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in Malaysia. He works closely with tech partners, NGOs and stakeholders to conduct fisher-centric research and development. The goal is to build a minimum viable product (MVP) to test and measure their approach and outcomes.
