Special Issue Latin-america

Special issue on Latin American small-scale fisheries, stewardship's opportunities and challenges, was launched in Maritime Studies journal (Springer). With contributions originated from 7 countries, the thematic series elucidates on the management improvements, challenges, and processes that have emerged in that region of the world, turning it a social innovation pole.
