Typologies of Global Dependence on Fish for Food & Livelihoods
Monday, August 1, 1:15-2:45, Salon F
Please join us for a focus group to discuss dependence on fish in coastal communities throughout the world. We are seeking input to generate typologies of human dependence on fish, based on::
- Characteristics of local marine ecosystems
- Descriptions of community reliance on fish for income & livelihoods
- Characteristics of nutritional dependence on fisheries and food substitution patterns
- Existing local fisheries management restrictions/regimes
Outputs will help prioritize future research on nutrition and global fisheries. We hope to include expertise from all over the world, with specific focus on Bangladesh, Solomon Islands, Madagascar, Kenya, Ghana, Peru, Brazil, Kiribati, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar, PNG, Philippines, and Canadian First Nations.
Coffee, tea, and a light snack and dessert bar will be available.
For more information and to ensure we have enough snacks please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
