Illuminating Hidden Harvests country case study author: Kristie Alleyne
Illuminating Hidden Harvests (IHH): The contribution of small-scale fisheries to sustainable development is a collaborative study led by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, Duke University, and WorldFish. In this series, we profile some of the more than 300 experts from over 50 countries who contributed to the 58 country and territory case studies and thematic studies included in the IHH research, due out in 2021. Kristie Alleyne, a Ph.D. Candidate at the World Maritime University (WMU) and formerly a Research Assistant at the Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) was a contributing author to the IHH Barbados case study. She was recently awarded a Ph.D. Scholarship for the Closing the Circle Program at WMU in Sweden. Her research focuses on understanding the effects of sargassum [seaweed] influx events on Caribbean fishers and finding management solutions to address the social-ecological challenges.
