Guidelines

FishNet invites all our members to post updates about fisheries. We especially welcome posts that fit in with our overall vision.

Please note that all posts are subject to approval, everything will be proof-read and we may make minor changes or ask you to. We will also remove any content that could be considered spam.

Vision

FishNet recognises the damaging impact that ineffective marine and coastal management has on international development and the environment, but FishNet aims to raise awareness about the solutions. We believe that sustainable development can meet the challenges caused by overfishing, habitat destruction, natural disasters and climate change. As such, we take the positive perspective that fisheries from around the world can be made to work for the future as well as today.

FishNet members can post:

News and Events: These are either short original pieces or links to other articles. It is best to keep these entries short - less than 500 words. Please don't repost/articles or blogs in full unless you have the full permission of the author; to avoid issues around copyright and plagiarism, please provide a short summary or quote and then link to the source.

Q&A: The theories, concepts and practices associated with sustainable fisheries can be complicated and unclear. To better understand them, members can use FishNet’s Q&A page to ask other people within our community any questions that they may have.

Photos and Films: FishNet is for sharing, so we encourage our members to upload photos and films. It is important, however, that copyright laws are not broken. Therefore, if the picture or clip is not your own, make sure that you have permission to use it and that credit is given where it is deserved.

Resources: Features documents that can be downloaded either through FishNet or from a third party. It is best to link to the original source. These could be research outputs or articles.

Spam

We consider any post that is not relevant to FishNet’s vision to be spam. Any content that is uploaded that we regard as unsolicited for the purposes of advertising, phishing or spreading malware will be promptly removed and the member will be suspended. Report spam.
