The V2V publication "From vulnerability to viability: A situational analysis of small-scale fisheries in Asia and Africa"
We are delighted to announce the publication of our latest joint research paper, which represents the culmination of three years of intensive collaborative work involving 75 authors from 20 different countries and over 50 institutions. This groundbreaking study explores vulnerability to viability transitions in Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF) through a comprehensive synthesis of case studies from 12 countries. The paper, titled "From vulnerability to viability: A situational analysis of small-scale fisheries in Asia and Africa", is now available for reading at the following link: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpol.2023.105731.
We would like to express our gratitude to all the contributors who made this publication possible. The dedication and expertise of each author have resulted in a comprehensive analysis that will undoubtedly contribute to the broader understanding of the vulnerability to viability transitions in small-scale fisheries. We believe that the findings presented in this publication have the potential to inform future research, policy development, and management strategies in the field of small-scale fisheries. Congratulations, V2V family!
