Fostering the participation of Artisanal Fishermen in the 2nd World Small Scale Fisheries Congress

Location: Merida, Mexico.

Partner: Artisanal fishermen.

Date: September 2014.

Two fishermen and representatives of Brazilian artisanal fisheries participated in the 2nd World Small-Scale Fisheries Congress. The participation of both in the event was funded by LDA. The objective was to enable them to learn about small-scale fisheries in other countries, to get to know the researchers and fishermen present at the event so that they could pass on their experience to other fishermen in their communities and/or movements. The expectation was greater integration between research and practice in the coastal management area.
