Synthesising CABFishMan’s Tools

Small-scale fisheries (SSFs) are key sources of employment, trade, and culture. The many benefits, or ‘services’, that SSFs collectively provide make them an important source of wellbeing and income – yet the nuances of SSFs make them difficult to account for in decision-making processes. Our Management Digest synthesises CABFISHMAN’s work to address the complexity of managing SSFs by creating a new suite of bespoke tools to accurately estimate their impact and support their sustainable development, exploring the processes underpinning our tools, and how they may be applied to SSFs across the European Atlantic.
