This series of two-page brief highlights some of the new technologies and processes available, in order to inspire practitioners and policy-makers to put them to use. This one describes how three new tools are helping to show the
extent of fish losses that occur between fisher and consumer and where and how they happen. Knowing the size and nature of these losses is the first step towards preventing them. It’s an important problem to tackle, not only because millions of fishers, processors, and traders make a living from fish but also because many fisheries around the world are threatened.
