The main aim of this scoping review was to provide DFID with a robust review and analysis of evidence in the field of fisheries and aquaculture research. The findings of the review will then be used by DFID to evaluate its involvement in this field of research.

This exercise consisted of four main elements:

  • An in depth review of evidence related to fisheries and aquaculture in developing countries and their impact/relationship with economic growth, food security and nutrition;

  • An exhaustive literature review of peer reviewed sources looking at this area of research;

  • Comprehensive mapping of other relevant interventions in this area (both on-going and/or recently completed);

  • Verification and peer-review of evidence presented through a discussion workshop (or similar event) carried out by a panel of renowned experts.
