Sharmane Allen, a former resident of Harbour Breton, found herself a long way from Newfoundland in May as she was in Rome, Italy attending consultations hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on small- scale fisheries (SSF).
Ms. Allen was asked to be part of a civil society delegation at the international meetings by the Canadian Fisheries Research Network and was a delegate with the World Forum on Fisheries People.
She said, “As a PhD student at Memorial University studying SSF in Newfoundland and Labrador, this opportunity was invaluable in many ways.
“The United Nations contends that if the world does not recognize the importance of SSF and protect their existence, the future of this sector is bleak as it is facing a number of common problems worldwide.”
