Insights into the Potential Pathways for Increasing the Sustainability of Small-scale Fisheries

Insights into the Potential Pathways for Increasing the Sustainability of Small-scale Fisheries

During 2019, Advanced Conservation Strategies and Ocean Outcomes collected primary data to understand key aspects of small-scale fisheries. In particular, we sought to collect insights into the demand for triple-bottom line approaches to small-scale fisheries improvement and perceptions on the challenges to delivering more high-quality and responsible seafood. First, we conducted a rapid online survey focused on demand for triple-bottom line learning in small-scale fisheries. Second, we conducted in-depth interviews in Chile and Peru, which were focused on the importance, attention, and progress of different factors in increasing the amount of small-scale, high-quality, and responsible seafood. Here, we briefly present the results of these two efforts.
