Our Engagement Team facilitates the uptake of tools made by CABFISHMAN. They work to:
This approach allows all stakeholders to exchange views and amplify their voices in the decision-making arena. It focuses on practical outputs from our research by allowing the industry to adapt to new challenges with useful, up-to-date information.

To understand practices used by small-scale fisheries across the Northeast Atlantic, we are analysing and evaluating existing fisheries data to create a resource for all stakeholders in the form of a map depicting small-scale fisheries activity.
Our analysis looks beyond fisheries as a source of food to consider their natural and cultural heritage values, allowing stakeholders to account for the real socioeconomic impact of fisheries and marine ecosystems across the region.
We are designing an interactive tool which will allow users to describe and map small scale-fishing activity. By placing the Northeast Atlantic’s small-scale fishing within a wider context, this tool will facilitate fisheries management, education, public awareness, and habitat protection.
CABFISHMAN seeks to build a future for fisheries management where fishers work confidently alongside managers, government officials and scientists. Together, facilitating a network of healthy, diverse ecosystems and fisheries in the Northeast Atlantic.
By engaging diverse groups with a stake in fisheries management the project will ensure that small-scale fisheries are included in decision making processes at all scales.
