Amplifying small-scale fishers’ voices

Over-exploitation, pollution and rising sea temperatures cause fish stock to decline putting coastal communities at risk; and with limited access to resources and decision-making processes, small-scale fishers are often unable to properly voice their concerns. During the pandemic, the Strathclyde-led One Ocean Hub facilitated small-scale fishers’ participation in regional and international online workshops, and continues to advocate recognition of customary laws and implementation of international human rights law to advance communities’ wellbeing.
