Fish are an important source of nutrients and one that may assist the country’s predominantly rural population of agriculturalists to e...

In Timor-Leste, a small, less-developed country within this region, ‘sardiña’ are some of the more commonly caught and consumed fish. Yet there is little published information from Timor-Leste about the species composition of th...
Small-scale fisheries are responsible for landing half of the world’s fish catch, yet there are very sparse data on these fishing activities and associated fisheries production in time and space. Fisheries-dependent data underpin scientific guidance of management and conservation of fisheries systems, but it is inherently difficult to generate robu...

We examine women’s contributions to household food and income using focus group discussions, market surveys, and landings data in six communities in Timor-Leste.
