      Samudra Report No. 81, dated June 2019, features articles on fisheries from around the world, with a special focus on implementation of the the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF Guidelines). The editorial Comment that opens the issue focuses on subsistence fisheries in the Western and Central Pacific region and their importance as a source of nutrition, culture and welfare for the communities living there. It notes that the course of action for the region is outlined in the SSF Guidelines, which need to be integrated into regional strategies and processes. An article from Cuba reports on a Fisheries Forum that brought together stakeholders from coastal communities to examine opportunities and challenges to make fisheries more sustainable, considering how vital fishing is for Cuba's economy and the livelihoods of its coastal communities. The geography, histories and cultures of the Pacific island region, and its 14 small island developing states, represent unique challenges and opportunities, argues another article. It notes that the introduction of the SSF Guidelines is an ambitious global-level policy pledge designed to provide overarching guidance towards improving the governance of small-scale fisheries around the world. The piece from Nigeria shows how waterfront communities, whose livelihoods are predominantly dependent on fishing and related activities, live under constant fear of eviction.

      SAMUDRA Report No. 82, dated February 2020, features articles on fisheries from around the world. The current issue has extensive analysis and commentary on the Blue Economy and Blue Growth. The article from Seychelles analyzes the several contradictions in the conservation initiative of the country’s Blue Bond scheme, while the one from Sri Lanka points out that the National Fisheries Policy needs to be remodelled to incorporate the SSF Guidelines. Yet another says that women in fisheries can utilize the SSF Guidelines to advance their interests and build a common vision. The biggest-ever oil spill disaster in Brazil's history points to the need for State-sponsored disaster management, says another report. From neighbouring Chile comes a piece that argues for a new type of autonomous social movement to create a democratic and representative Constitution. India's draft National Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy (NIFAP) is analyzed in one article, while another explains how artisanal fishers’ experiential knowledge can help address many problems, including climate change. SAMUDRA Report No. 82 also carries an obituary tribute to Sidney Holt, a towering intellect and a committed conservationist, who died late last year.
