The report of the workshop “Stewardship in small-scale fisheries” is available. It took place on July 29-30, 2016 in St. John’s, Canada, and brought together 16 participants from Brazil, Canada, Eritrea, India, Japan, Mexico, USA, Thailand, and Turks and Caicos. I co-organized and co-led this workshop as a coordinator of the “Stewardship” research cluster of the TBTI project. The objective of the SSF Stewardship cluster was to create a global overview of SSF impacts on ecosystem, as well as to capture their contributions to conservation and stewardship.
Released of “State of the Art in small-scale fisheries“, the second volume of the “Small-scale fisheries of the World” e-publication series from the Too Big To Ignore project.
It presents a synthesized, up-to-date knowledge about SSF around the world. The bibliographic summary is based on the information available in the ‘State of the Art’ layer of the Information System on Small-scale Fisheries (ISSF), the crowd-sourcing platform of the TBTI project.
Have a look at the recently released e-publication on “Who’s Who in small-scale fisheries” from the Too Big To Ignore project.
This is the first volume of the “Small-scale Fisheries of the World‘ series. It highlights general information on the small-scale fisheries researchers and organizations involved in enhancing SSF knowledge worldwide, using the Information System on Small-scale Fisheries, the crowd-sourcing platform of the TBTI project.

I’m currently a postdoctoral researcher. My research focuses on the quantification and management of marine resources & biodiversity.
My background covers three topics: (1) the benefits of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for the marine biodiversity and local artisanal fisheries, (2) the quantification of overlooked and badly known fisheries (artisanal, recreational and subsistance ones) in various contexts, and (3) the description and evaluation of the marine populations’ connectivity patterns and their importance for a better management of our marine resources.
I applied my work in several environments: the Mediterranean Sea (France and Spain), the North-east Atlantic, the North Sea, but also in tropical environments while working in the West Indies (Guadeloupe) and South Pacific (New-Caledonia).
I’m currently working on worldwide small-scale fisheries within the Too Big To Ignore (TBTI) project at the Memorial University of Newfoundland (St John’s, Canada).
