Small-scale fisheries (SSF) account for most of the livelihoods associated with fisheries worldwide and support food security for millions globally, yet face critical challenges from local threats and global pressures. This introductory talk will describe how emerging concepts from social-ecological systems thinking can illuminate potential solutions to challenges facing SSF management, for three key themes: (1) external drivers of change; (2) social-ecological traps; and (3) diagnostic approaches and multiple outcomes in SSF. The purpose of this talk is to introduce how theoretical and empirical research in social-ecological systems and resilience can aid practitioners by making these concepts more operational. Our overarching goal is to stimulate discussion and innovative ideas about how social-ecological systems and resilience thinking can inform a transition towards sustainability in small-scale fisheries. This is the introductory talk to the session entitled: “Achieving Resilience in Small-Scale Fisheries: Applying Emerging Frontiers in Social-Ecological Systems Research.”
