Point 3 mentions that "problems have been largely treated as a biological issue rather than economic and political matters". This is very true.

In this regard, in addition to the comments from the colleagues on covering gender and youth dimensions, the study should look into the business aspects of fisheries and aquaculture. In particular, the role of private sector in the value chain and policies that can support their engagement in a way that can benefit the small-holder fisherman and women along the chain.
