Illuminating Hidden Harvests Study in the Spotlight at COFI Virtual Dialogues

Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions

More than 300 experts from over 50 countries are contributing to the Illuminating Hidden Harvests (IHH) study, which will provide never-before-seen insights into global small-scale fisheries when the results are released in February 2021. Led by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Duke University, and WorldFish, the study will assess the contributions, impacts, and drivers of small-scale fisheries.

An overview of the IHH research approach and preliminary results were presented during a webinar as part of the Virtual Dialogues on the Path to the 34th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries, held July 15–17. Kate Bevitt, a communications consultant for WorldFish, recapped the discussion at the webinar in a post for WorldFish's Fish Tank blog.
