Fish for food and nutrition security for the global poor
Joeri Scholtens
University of Amsterdam

This triple panel includes 12 papers that interrogate the significance of fish and fisheries for food and nutrition security. It builds on four ongoing research projects that aim to understand and improve the contribution of fish and fisheries to food and nutrition security. The Fish4Food project (focusing on urban poor in India and Ghana); the DriedFishMatters project (focusing on dried fish in South and South-East Asia); the SmallFishFood project (focusing on small indigenous fish in Africa) and the IKAN-F3 project (focusing on Indonesia). These projects, each with their distinct regional focus, aim to understand local-to-global fish value chains of typically underappreciated small, cheap and dried fish, and to develop greater appreciation for their vast contribution to alleviating ‘hidden hunger’ and for their provision of millions of livelihoods. This panel series creates space for sharing and discussing interim results by junior and senior researchers working in these projects.
