Illuminating Hidden Harvests (IHH) is a global, collaborative study with contributions from over 800 people, which seeks to shed light on small-scale fisheries through a multidisciplinary approach to data collection and analysis. As part of this, MEP were the lead authors for the UK case study. The study provides information that quantifies and improves understanding of the crucial role of small-scale fisheries in the areas of food security and nutrition, sustainable livelihoods, poverty eradication and healthy ecosystems. It also examines gender equality as well as the nature and scope of governance in small-scale fisheries. Ultimately, the study aims to provide a more holistic understanding of what small-scale fisheries are, and why they are essential considerations on the route to achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
