    Description: The opening editorial Comment in this issue argues that as the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) gets under way, it is imperative to lobby for policies and processes that will empower small-scale fishing communities. How the Guaranis, indigenous people of Morro dos Cavalos in Brazil, are being displaced from their lands to satisfy the interests of politicians and businesses is analyzed in one article, while another details how the Seafood Slavery Risk Tool tracks abuses of labour and human rights in seafood supply chains. The current issue also features a report on the Danish Institute for Human Rights’ meeting on the contribution of human rights to the sustainable development of fisheries. Continuing on the theme of livelihood rights, the article from Indonesia delineates the causes for the poor nutritional intake in Indonesia's coastal communities. On-the-ground reports of two meetings – one on the largest conference on occupational safety and health in the fishing industry, held in Canada, and the other, on the 33rd Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) – provide insights into issues that plague the fisheries sector in different ways. Another article in SAMUDRA Report No. 79 explains how fishermen and scientists are being brought together to track wind and waves, and save lives, through new innovative weather forecasting technology. A report on the Pêcheurs du Monde film festival, held in Lorient, France, and which turns 10 this year, as well as a review of a book on the global implementation of the SSF Guidelines, swing the spotlight to the problems that small-scale fishing communities face around the world. SAMUDRA Report No. 79 also features the regular Roundup section that carries news snippets, analysis and tidbits on fisheries from around the world. SAMUDRA Report No. 79 can be accessed at
