Better data on and understanding of small-scale fisheries is needed to enable sound governance and sustainable development of the sector in line with the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines). In June 2017, FAO in collaboration with WorldFish and Duke University initiated a global study entitled ‘Illuminating Hidden Harvests: the contribution of small-scale fisheries to sustainable development’ (IHH), which was introduced in the last session of the Committee (see COFI/2018/Inf.18). The release of the study is planned for the end of 2020. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief update on the status of the study and to share emerging insights on the need for better methodologies and additional monitoring capacity to improve our collective understanding of small-scale fisheries, in order to increase government attention and improve policy responses and outcomes for the sector.
