Subsistence fishing and food security in coastal and Amazon riverine small-scale fisheries


Subsistence fisheries, despite being widely ignored in official statistics and scientific studies, are one of the pillars of the food security of fishing communities, which tend to be socially vulnerable. This proposal targets the writing and submission of three scientific papers, which main goal is to partially fill some scientific gaps related to this type of fishery in the Brazilian fisheries science. Specifically, it intends to 1) revise, complete and publish the reconstruction of the historical catches of subsistence fisheries in Brazil since 1950; 2) infer changes from consumption to sale of high-valued species (namely, groupers), and 3) relate recent historical changes in the catches of top predators, including groupers, with the Brazilian fishing status.
