This book contributes to the global effort of promoting viability and sustainability in small-scale fishing communities, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean.

In 23 chapters encompassing case studies from more than 14 countries, specialists from various disciplines within the region share lessons learned and offer insights about inland and marine small-scale fisheries assessment, monitoring and management, adaptive capacity, stewardship, sustainable livelihoods, market dynamics, food security, as well as institutional and legal frameworks, relevant to Latin America and Caribbean countries and elsewhere.

The publication also constitutes an important step towards the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF Guidelines) as it raises the big questions and helps identify challenges and prospects to ensure a viable and sustainable small-scale fisheries future.
