Traditional Knowledge of Northern Waters 2018 was a project that focused on two iconic Arctic river basins in the Fennoscandian and Russian North – the Skolt Sámi home stream of Näätämö river flowing from Finland to the Barents Sea and Ponoi river on Kola Peninsula, Russia. A third geographical area of the project was the coastal community of Sosnovka which is in close proximity to the Ponoi river mouth. The project benefitted from previous scientific work that commenced in the area 2006.
The project was led by the Snowchange Cooperative (FI) with House of Culture (Lovozero, Russia) and CBM – Swedish Biodiversity Center being project partners together with Sámi organisations. Funding was provided by NEFCO PECC-1 Programme.
As part of its overall effort to bring greater transparency and traceability to seafood supply chains, Future of Fish set out to explore the power of story to sell more fish and to determine what elements of that story most influence consumer purchasing behavior. This study is part of a series of investigations to identify the business benefits of data-rich supply chains and ignite market incentives for more responsibly harvested and traded seafood.
This report is a practical guide for those looking to improve government fisheries data systems and governance frameworks. A core part of our approach is to define and demonstrate the clear benefits of improved data systems to governments, a process that varies depending on individual as well as organizational goals and mandates.
Fish Forever’s strategy is to build the capacity of management groups to ensure transparent, equitable and representative decision making for local fisheries that reflect the wishes of constituent communities and stakeholders.
The tool below summarizes information collected through the Fish Forever Household Survey (HHS). The HHS contains defined-answer questions assessing respondents’ livelihoods, engagement with the local fishery, resilience to economic shocks, social capital, knowledge of fishing regulations, attitudes toward fisheries management, participation in fisheries management, and perceptions of current management approaches.
Fisheries production data is collected through the OurFish digital fisheries data collection app. The OurFish app allows buyers to self-report the types, quantities, and costs of fish purchased from community fishers. Buyer reporting will help reveal the size of the local market and provide data on the scale of harvest. The repeated collection of buyer data will provide data on seasonal variations and long-term trends, serving as an early warning system for fishery decline.
This ecological monitoring tool provides access to habitat and fish population data collected through standardized underwater visual surveys. Use this tool to evaluate trends and changes in critical habitats and species.
Undervalued and overlooked, the world's freshwater fish are critical for the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people—and the health of rivers, lakes, and wetlands—but 1/3rd of them are already threatened with extinction. Promoting thriving populations of freshwater fishes and the ecosystems within which they thrive is a priority for WWF and the 15 organizations and alliances that produced this report.
The full range of activities required to deliver fish and fish products from production to the final consumer is subject to indirect impacts of the pandemic through new sanitary measures, changing consumer demands, market access or logistical problems related to transportation and border restrictions. This in turn has a damaging effect on fishers and fish farmers’ livelihoods, as well as on food security and nutrition for populations that rely heavily on fish for animal protein and essential micronutrients.
This policy brief reviews on going challenges and proposes measures to protect production and income of the sector and the most vulnerable, as well as maintain operations and support the supply chain.
Shot during the peak of the first wave of Covid-19 in India, this documentary tells the story of how the fishermen and women of Kollam coped with the lockdown and the widespread disruptions in their fisheries. Responding to the crisis, the local fisheries cooperative introduced a major change to the prevalent auction system. The innovation was aimed at both ensuring the safety of the coastal fishing community, and correcting the power imbalance between fishers and traders. But the new system had some unforeseen consequences.
El presente protocolo se realizó con la inspiración de diferentes protocolos que se emplean en los tres ecosistemas prioritarios donde COBI trabaja. El objetivo principal es fortalecer las capacidades de los socios comunitarios, personal de áreas naturales protegidas, investigadores, estudiantes, y voluntarios en general, los cuales podrán conocer y aprender las diferentes técnicas de monitoreo, especies que se censan en estos ecosistemas prioritarios y así lograr una colecta de datos estandarizada a nivel nacional.
These identification cards are intended to improve the reporting of interactions between vessels targeting species under the management mandate of the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) and seabirds. The major seabird species groups that occur within the IOTC Area of Competence are described and details of the species most commonly interacting with the pelagic fisheries for tuna and tuna-like species are provided in a clear, easily navigable, pictoral identification guide. Key diagnostic features are illustrated alongside distribution maps indicating species occurrence.
This is an identification guide for marine turtles that may interact with the pelagic fisheries for tuna and tuna-like species in the Indian Ocean. The characteristics of the six species found in the Indian Ocean (flatback, loggerhead, hawksbill, green, olive ridley and leatherback turtles) are described with colour photographs, schematic diagrams of key diagnostic features and distribution maps.
The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) were adopted by member countries of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and were officially approved as an international instrument in June 2014. Tis document is only a summation of the contents of the Guidelines.
The SSF Guidelines detail a rich, multisectoral compilation of good practices for a wide range of stakeholders to be aware of and to adopt to secure sustainable small-scale fisheries for food security and poverty eradication. As such the Tool is designed to raise awareness of these good practices and to support a country-level assessment of status of implementation to inform programming and project design.
This document provides a landscape analysis of the technological ‘state of play’ as well as current activity relating to the use of new and emerging technologies to help solve common fishery-related challenges at the global, regional and national levels, including the individuals, organizations, countries and technology service providers engaged in these activities. Activities range from on-the-water technical implementations of cameras or other sensors to collect data, to regional scale efforts to monitor illegal fishing using satellites, to global scale efforts to streamline and modernize data management systems.
The aims of this policy brief are to: identify lessons that have been learned in the many attempts to develop small-scale tuna fisheries in the Pacific region; and use those lessons to provide guidance to fisheries agencies and donors for future efforts.
This report identifies stakeholders of the artisanal fishery in Ghana, conducts a network analysis of these stakeholders and provides recommendations on how these networks could be harnessed for the development of the artisanal fishery in the region.
The “Go Small-Scale Fishing!” game is an educational tool in which players learn about small-scale fisheries, and how to put the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) into action.
