Coastal Matters: Let’s Put Small-Scale Fisheries Back on the Map! The Global Information System on Small-Scale Fisheries

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador website says: “Better management of coastal and ocean areas and resources is best achieved with the involvement of local people.” ACAP Humber Arm Invites you to join our next Coastal Matters presentation where we will hear from special guest speaker, Dr. Rodolphe Devillers, Department of Geography, Memorial University of Newfoundland. Dr. Devillers has titled his presentation Let’s Put Small-Scale Fisheries Back on the Map! The Global Information System on Small-Scale Fisheries. An abstract for the talk can be found below.

This presentation will take place 12:30 to 1:30pm, Wednesday, Mar 18th in room 301 of the Library and Computing Building, Grenfell Campus. As with all Coastal Matters presentations this session is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be available.

ABSTRACT
You think small-scale fisheries are important? So do we! But governments too rarely follow this vision. Despite their importance to most coastal societies, small-scale fisheries are poorly understood. Knowledge is often scattered and fragmentary, contributing to their marginalization from policies in many countries. This talk presents the Information System on Small-scale Fisheries (ISSF), a major international initiative led by the “Too Big To Ignore” (TBTI) project that aims to capture, manage and share small-scale fisheries knowledge from around the world in an unprecedented way. ISSF provides a web platform supporting crowdsourcing of small-scale fisheries data (http://issf.toobigtoignore.net/), allowing stakeholders to share their knowledge and anyone to search and visualize this information, contributing to a better understanding of the importance of those fisheries.
