Artisanal Fisheries Research Network

SAFRN aims to serve as a hub for interdisciplinary communication and collaboration on methods for studying small-scale and artisanal fisheries, and for elucidating the commonalities and differences across fisheries in different regions where our research is conducted. We are members of Too Big To Ignore, a larger, global research network that aims to elevate the profile of small-scale fisheries.
