The International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA) 2022 celebrated the contribution of millions of small-scale fishers, fish farmers and fish workers who work every day for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life for all. The year has laid the groundwork for a new era that will enable small-scale artisanal fishers, fish farmers and fish workers to enhance what they do and benefit from a Blue Transformation. 

As the year draws to a close, FAO is organizing a hybrid event that will showcase actions taken to celebrate the Year, and announce commitments to bring the IYAFA 2022 recommendations to fruition.
