Aquatic Diversity is an important component of agricultural biodiversity. The conservation and sustainable use of local aquatic ecosystems, ponds, rivers, coastal commons by artisanal fisherfolk and smallholder farmers is important to the survival of both humans and the environment. Since aquatic organisms, including fish, provide much of our food supply and income for coastal peoples, it is critical that fisherfolk and smallholder farmers have genetic reserves and sustainable ecosystems to draw upon as aquaculture and marine fisheries management continue to evolve.
Please submit sites and papers that cover key issues on aquatic diversity / biodiversity of fish and aquatic organisms / aquatic ecosystem diversity - especially those that include the conservation and sustainable use activities of fisherfolk
