Fisheries play a vital role in the coastal communities of Latin America and the Caribbean. To gain a better understanding of the sector in this region, the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department recently published a technical paper, Coastal fisheries of Latin America and the Caribbean, providing information on the assessment and management of coastal small-scale fisheries in 12 countries, as well as subregional overviews and a summary of issues and trends.
