New policy brief: Inland fisheries in a development context
A new policy brief, Inland fisheries in a development context, is published in cooperation between SLU Global and SLU Aqua.
SLU Global together with David Lymer, researcher at SLU Aqua, has recently published a policy brief focusing on sustainable inland capture fisheries in low-income countries.
Key messages from the report:
• Inland capture fisheries are crucial to food security and micronutrient needs of human populations in many low-income countries.
• Small-scale fisheries, including artisanal and subsistence fishers, is the major group utilising inland waters in low-income countries.
• Major effects on the resource include environmental changes, degradation and loss of freshwater ecosystems.
• Overall, there is a lack of reliable data on inland fish stocks and fisheries, and more research and capacity building is urgently needed.
