CABFISHMAN is developing resources that will be available to the small-scale fishing sector, policy makers, industry leaders, environmental organisations, members of the scientific community, and all other individuals with an interest in the project. These tools will be available beyond the duration of the project, ensuring a lasting, useful legacy.
Such resources will offer a wide scope of benefits, including:
Through this tool development we are able to establish clear routes to access information that are applicable to all stakeholders, allowing for long-term collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Our dedicated Communications Team facilitates interaction between stakeholders and project collaborators. Their priority is to ensure our work is disseminated in a manner that is meaningful and appropriate to all parties.
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.
