Launch of TBTI Canada
TBTI Canada was launched on Worlds Fisheries Day with the presentation of the e-book Thinking Big about Small-Scale Fisheries in Canada: Stories, Perspectives, and Research about Small-scale Fisheries in Canada, edited by Evan Andrews and Christine Knott. This book includes stories, perspectives, and research about small-scale fisheries across Canada, taking as a starting point that they are key solutions for a range of issues challenging the sector and the governance. Book authors joined the event, both in-person and virtually, reading excerpts from their chapters. The book is available for free download from the TBTI Global website..
The launch of TBTI Canada, as the 5th TBTI hub in the world, and the first in the Global North is a big step for small-scale fisheries in a country where this sector is not as well recognized as it should be. The celebration was commemorated with a chocolate cake decorated with a green cod fish, courtesy of Mary Londero, TBTI undergrad student. Needless to say, the cake tradition will continue with a launch of a new hub. Who’s up next?
