Why Blue Justice ?
The National Consortium for Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF) Research and Development or Too Big To Ignore (TBTI) Philippines had its Second Executive Committee Meeting last 13 November 2023 at the Batangas State University ARASOF – Nasugbu (BatStateU ARASOF-Nasugbu). The 2nd ExeCom meeting was hosted by the BatStateU ARASOF-Nasugbu.
During the World Oceans Week (WOW) last June, TBTI partnered with local, national, international and inter-governmental organizations from around the world in organizing the ‘Small is Bountiful’ event that featured a series of online webinars and panel discussions about smalls-scale fisheries.
Each November 21, World Fisheries Day, is a welcomed opportunity to reflect on the ever-increasing knowledge about fishing, fishers, coastal communities, and the status of the oceans and the fish stocks, as well as to recognize the contribution of fishing people who provide food, nutrition and income security to millions of people around the world.
While publications and presentations remain the main channels for research dissemination, the need to engage audiences using different methods and alternative forms of media is increasingly recognized. Podcasts are one of those new option, offering opportunities for informal conversation and for making different types of connection.

Transdisciplinarity and Transformation for the Future of Small-Scale Fisheries
The 3rd WSFC is a transdisciplinary forum for anyone interested in small-scale fisheries to participate in an interactive discussion about the future of the world’s small-scale fisheries.
The overall goal of the Congress is to facilitate opportunities for researchers, students, young professionals, practitioners, fishers and fishers’ organizations, environmental groups, and policymakers to share information about all aspects of small-scale fisheries and to formulate action plans and capacity development programs to support the implementation of the SSF Guidelines.
