Illuminating Hidden Harvests: Small-scale Fisheries and their Governance

About

Back to top

Small-scale fisheries are one of the oldest and still most prevalent ocean uses and food production systems. However, their contributions to society have been difficult to measure and often underappreciated by decision-makers. Here we share some of the preliminary findings of the Illuminating Hidden Harvests assessment of the contributions of small-scale fisheries to sustainable development, led by FAO, WorldFish and Duke University. We shine a spotlight on recent and ongoing research on the governance of these fisheries, and the extent to which governments are securing their access in law (preferring/reserving zones of the sea for these fisheries).
