Illuminating Hidden Harvests (IHH) is a global research report produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Duke University and WorldFish. The report provides new evidence on the benefits, interactions and impacts of small-scale fisheries to inform policy and practice. The IHH team developed a rigorous methodology, based on a multidisciplinary approach, to collect and synthesize the information currently available on small-scale fisheries. More than 800 experts contributed to 58 country and territory case studies – covering 68 percent of global marine catch and 62 percent of global inland catch – and a series of thematic studies to address key topics. The full research findings, due out in 2022, the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, look holistically at small-scale fisheries by examining their environmental, economic, nutrition and governance dimensions while using gender as a cross-cutting theme.
