On Wednesday, January 25th at 6 PM UTC, TBTI members Rodolphe Devillers & David Bishop will be discussing the Information System on Small-Scale Fisheries (ISSF) during a webinar hosted by EBM Tools Network. The webinar, which is titled “Crowd Sourcing Small-Scale Fisheries Data: A Global Initiative“, will be coordinated by NatureServe, OpenChannels.org & MEAM.
The Information System on Small-scale Fisheries (ISSF) is a web portal that is used to integrate, summarize, and communicate information on small-scale fisheries (SSF) globally. Based on a crowdsourcing approach, the data are all freely accessible, helping the global SSF community to better qualify and quantify SSF and their importance. The system provides diverse information, including people and organizations involved in this field, publications, and detailed profiles of SSF at specific locations. The system allows users to access data as a map or a table, generate reports, and export data for further analyses. ISSF was developed as part of the international project “Too Big to Ignore”. Access the portal at https://dory.creait.mun.ca
