The Fisheries Policy Brief supports the following key messsages.
Improving the governance and management of fisheries exploitation is the principal means of securing the contribution wild capture fisheries to food security.
The fisheries policies of tomorrow need to include not only data on environmental issues and fisheries resources, but also be complemented with research data on the patterns and dynamics of fish trade, value chains and end user consumption.
To distribute the benefits of fishing more equitably, the responsibility for management and decision making should be devolved to the level where the incentives for fisheries to meet the widest community objectives are highest.
For fisheries reform and policy implementation to be successful, primacy should be given to honest inclusive stakeholder dialogue.
As fisheries do not exist in isolation, multi-sectoral perspectives and approaches need to be developed and supported
