TBTI workshop on ‘Stewardship in small-scale fisheries’ workshop, 29-30 July, St. John’s

TBTI workshop on Stewardship in small-scale fisheries 

On 29‐30 July TBTI  will hold a  workshop  on  “Stewardship in small-scale fisheries”. The workshop will take place at Memorial University, St. John’s, Canada, prior to the 2016 International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC4), and will end at noon on July 30th.

The workshop is part of the TBTI SSF Stewardship research cluster, which aims to provide a global overview of small-scale fishing impacts and contributions of small-scale fisheries (SSF) to conservation and stewardship. The purpose of this workshop is to share information about stewardship activities involving small-scale fishing people in various parts of the world, synthesize knowledge about impacts of SSF and discuss what need to be done to address them. The anticipated output from the workshop is a synthesis peer-reviewed paper, co-authored by workshop participants. We also invite participants to submit manuscripts on topics related to stewardship in small-scale fisheries to a journal special issue, which we will organize.

The registration for the workshop in now closed. For more information about the event, please contact toobigtoignore@mun.ca.
