The large research collaboration about small-scale fisheries titled "From vulnerability to viability" (V2V) is transdisciplinary and composed of some 100 partners, one of which is Mundus maris asbl. Approved in 2020, in-depth work is starting on 12 case studies, six in Africa and six in Asia. Sharing of research results within and well beyond the partnership is one of its features. This is why a series of monthly thematic webinars was started in January 2021. The inaugural session featured Rashid Sumaila,

professor and Canada Research Chair in Interdisciplinary Ocean and Fisheries Economics at the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, and the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, with a talk about "Trade in seafood and its impact on the livelihoods and food security in developing countries". The presentation touching on both legal and illegal fishing and trade was followed by a question and answers session.
