Summary

Despite the important effects of inland fisheries on food, economy, and ecosystem services throughout the world, no comprehensive understanding on the status or key drivers of inland fisheries exists (Beard et al. 2011). Our lack of knowledge regarding the status results from the common belief that inland fishery harvests are widely under reported (FAO 2009; Welcomme et al. 2010), particularly the contributions from recreational, artisanal, and illegal fisheries (FAO 2003; Allan et al. 2005). Overcoming this knowledge gap has no simple solution, given that resources to conduct on-the-ground fisheries assessments are lacking throughout much of the world, particularly in Africa or Asia where the majority of the inland fisheries harvest [...]

Project Extension

projectProducts
productDescription1. Convene a workshop to identify the best approach to developing a global model on the current status of inland fisheries. 2. Develop global models that predict inland fisheries production based on remotely sensed land and water variables. 3. Apply global models to inland systems where fisheries data were either not available or considered generally unreliable by local fisheries experts. 4. Develop regional models to understand climate and land use change effects on fish production.
