02/11/2018 -

Last week, FOL PhD candidates Diego Salgueiro and Alba Aguión have attented the 3rd World Small-Scale Fisheries Congress (3WSFC) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. During the gathering, researchers, ONGs, fishers and policy-makers have discussed the future challenges of Small-scale Fisheries with the aim to formulate action plans to facilitate the implementation of the Small-Scale Fisheries Guidelines from FAO.

During the conference different formats to share knowledge and exchange ideas were used. From the traditional oral presentations and posters, to innovative styles such as speed presentations and Pecha Kucha. Pecha Kucha is a 6 min and 40 sec presentation with a total of 20 slides in which each one automatically changes every 20 seconds. This type of format encourages presenters to be concise and used image-based slides. Through this format Alba presented the preliminary results of her first chapter thesis, done under the umbrella of CLOCK and PERCEBES projects. During her presentation Alba discussed the different levels of co-management in the stalked barnacle fishery in the south of Europe and how this relates to higher sustainable practices. Her presentation can be found here. Alba has received an award for one of the best presentations during the congress. From here we thank the 3WSFC for the organization, partial funding and award!
