What is ‘#artisanal’ and ‘small-scale’?

There is no universal definition of artisanal or #small-scale #fisheries or aquaculture. In general, these terms describe fisheries and aquaculture that use relatively small production units with relatively low input and low output, and limited levels of technology and small capital investment.

They are commonly managed on a family level, sometimes with a small group of employees, or at a community level. The fish are often sold in local markets but can also reach national and international markets.

For the purpose of #IYAFA, small-scale and artisanal are used interchangeably. Note that fishing for sport or recreation are commonly not called artisanal or
small-scale. #IYAFA2022 #ArtisanalFisheriesAquaculture
