The inshore fishery is the backbone of rural Newfoundland and Labrador, but it is under pressure from various sides: an aging workforce, rural depopulation, economies of scale which favour large industrialized operations, and depleted fish stocks, among other factors. How are these pressures likely to affect our small-scale fishery, and in turn, the rural parts of the province?
The forum will feature a panel of leading researchers and practitioners in issues related to small-scale fisheries:
Join us as our panelists share their stories, discuss common challenges of inshore fisheries on a global scale, and share possible solutions.
This event is presented in partnership with Too Big to Ignore, a new research network and knowledge mobilization partnership established to rectify the marginalization of small-scale fisheries in national and international policies, and to develop research and governance capacity to address global fisheries challenges.
