Group DescriptionThis group is a place to gather images of freshwater fisheries, aquaculture, and inland fishing communities. Inland fisheries are a valuable resource for human nutrition, food security, economic prosperity, and environmental health. However, development, agricultural, and water management policies are often at odds with maintaining sustainable inland fisheries.
The Global Inland Fisheries Conference was held in Rome in January 2015 to raise awareness of the value of inland fisheries and the need for more consideration of the impacts on freshwater fisheries in development and water management decision making. The conference produced the document "The Rome Declaration: Ten Steps to Responsible Inland Fisheries," which was presented to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization's Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in 2016.
All images of freshwater fisheries and aquaculture are welcome; however, Creative Commons content is particularly helpful in building our image library to support our efforts. Please share your inland fisheries photos here to help spread the word about protecting this important resource.
