This webinar on 20 November 2018 discussed how natural capital accounting methods could be used to identify the contribution made by small-scale fisheries to the national economy.

There are millions of small-scale fisheries around the world providing food and livelihoods for local communities and economies. Because they are mostly informal and difficult to track, they go unnoticed by sector statistics, which tend to focus on contributions from larger scale fishing industry to the national economy.
