    Abstract

    The contributors to this volume engaged in different ways with social wellbeing as an approach through which to investigate, identify and make visible a broad range of values associated with small-scale fisheries. In this concluding chapter, we highlight four themes that emerge from these contributions that are crucial for thinking about the diverse values of small-scale fisheries: (1) the broader context of transition; (2) integrating environmental considerations into wellbeing through co-construction and place; (3) recognizing the fertile, yet productively unsettled idea that value represents for small-scale fisheries, and; (4) putting into practice the social wellbeing approach to values that this volume develops. We point to connections between our approach and the FAO Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication.
