Contribution of Fisheries to Food and Nutrition Security

This report synthesizes current understanding of the contributions of capture fisheries to food and nutrition security and explores drivers of those contributions. It addresses three overarching questions:

  1. What contributions do capture fisheries make to food and nutrition security?
  2. What is the current policy dialogue regarding the links between capture fisheries and food and nutrition security?
  3. What data are available to inform research and policy development to support the contributions of capture fisheries to food and nutrition security?

The project seeks to address these questions with the aim of situating dialogue squarely within the science-policy interface. The overall goal is to provide a foundation of knowledge to inform the trajectory of research, policy, and practice that supports the role of capture fisheries in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) to end poverty (SDG1) and hunger (SDG2).
