New publication of TBTI's first research brief: "Giving European Small-Scale Fisheries a Place: Research Priorities and Opportunities"
The Too Big to Ignore network (TBTI http://toobigtoignore.net, a global partnership established to elevate the profile of small-scale fisheries research) is pleased to announce the publication of its first research brief, *Giving European Small-Scale Fisheries a Place: Research Priorities and Opportunities.* This research brief draws from the discussions at the MARE Policy Day, *Giving Small-Scale Fisheries a Place: the knowledge and governance challenges,* which we organized on 25 June 2013 in Amsterdam. It focuses on the EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and outlines some key research priorities to address the needs of small-scale fisheries (SSF) and how this sector can best implement the new CFP to create positive change.
The need for a greater understanding of SSF and for further investment in research for SSF in Europe has been emphasised throughout the CFP reform process. We hope this research brief will provide a useful starting point or guide to some of the research priorities and needs for Europe¹s SSF community.
