Report: Accelerating & Communicating Government Fisheries Data Modernization

Today, there are more efforts to improve data capture and sharing systems for wild caught seafood than ever before. Unfortunately, current data modernization efforts are not translating into more effective, adaptive fisheries management at a fast enough rate. This report aims to advance the field of fisheries data modernization within governments by providing insights from case studies, interviews with global experts, and a high-level review of existing literature and online resources. This research is the first step in a longer-term strategy to develop dialogue and programs to unlock barriers and drive positive change in this critical aspect of sustainable fisheries.
