FOL will be at the 3rd World Small-Scale Fisheries Congress

PhD candidates Diego and Alba will present their ongoing work at the conference held this October in Chiang Mai (Thailand)

26/07/2018 -

The World Small-Scale Fisheries Congress (WSFC) placed this year 2018 at Chinag Mai (Thailand) from October 22nd to 26th, is an annual forum to discuss about the implementation of small-scale fisheries (SSF) guidelines to achieve sustainable development goals. This year, the congress will be focus on efforts that help to enhance our understanding about transformation in fisheries with the objective to gather feasible options for the future use of small-scale resources. To foster interaction and promote transdisciplinarity, the congress will follow a dynamic format around 5 theme days (Science, Community, Policy, Field and Action) where the interaction, networking opportunities and information sharing will be facilitated. During the last day (the action day), roundtables to summarise and assemble the lessons learnt will be held.

FOL members Diego Salgueiro and Alba Aguión will attend the congress to share their ongoing work focused on Galician small-scale fisheries. Diego will show its research on adaptation of SSF discussing the compiled knowledge from different disciplines and scales, also rising the potential importance of networks in social-ecological systems linking outcomes and conditions. Alba will present a description of the different management systems in place for a benthic resource, discussing their implications in the context of the stalked barnacle fisheries in Europe. Both researchers have been awarded the funding support offered by WSFC to conduct their oral presentations in the Science day session.

Congratulations explorers and enjoy the experience!
