Crowdsourcing small-scale fisheries data: A global initiative

Crowdsourcing small-scale fisheries data: A global initiative

This webinar originally aired on 25 January 2017.

The Information System on Small-scale Fisheries (ISSF) is a web portal that is used to integrate, summarize, and communicate information on small-scale fisheries (SSF) globally. Based on a crowdsourcing approach, the data are all freely accessible, helping the global SSF community to better qualify and quantify SSF and their importance. The system provides diverse information, including people and organizations involved in this field, publications, and detailed profiles of SSF at specific locations. The system allows users to access data as a map or a table, generate reports, and export data for further analyses. ISSF was developed as part of the international project "Too Big to Ignore”. Access the portal at https://dory.creait.mun.ca.

This webinar was presented by Rodolphe Devillers and David Bishop of Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the webinar co-sponsored by the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and OpenChannels.org) and MEAM.
