    Questions for reflection, not written responses: 1. Why does it matter that fisheries be responsible for reducing the unintended harm their operations cause? 2. Explain your prediction of what will occur if we do not act to reduce accidental mortalities caused by fisheries. 3. What potential costs of fisheries entanglements are being externalized? 4. How can commercial fisheries change, and what is their new form?

13.2 RECORDED LECTURE on Google Drive (to watch before session)
Ratana Chuenpagdee - WHY DO SMALL-SCALE FISHERIES MATTER FOR OCEAN SUSTAINABILITY?
    Preparatory reading: Ratana Chuenpagdee and Svein Jentoft, "Small-scale Fisheries: Too Important to Fail" in The Future of Ocean Governance and Capacity Development: Essays in Honour of Elisabeth Mann Borgese (1918-2002), edited by IOI-Canada (Leiden: Brill Nijhoff, 2018), pp. 349-353.

    Questions (for reflection, not written responses): 1. What are small-scale fisheries and who are small-scale fisheries people? 2. Besides being small, what are their key characteristics? 3. What are the “services” that small-scale fisheries provide for society? 4. Small-scale fisheries are largely an informal sector. What does that mean, and is it a good or bad thing? 5. What are the reasons why small-scale fisheries are under-appreciated in the current political situation? 6. Do small-scale fisheries have rights? If so, what kind of rights? 7. The SSF Guidelines are “voluntary”. What does it mean and does it matter?
