Research paper: Study of the impact of intermediaries on environmental and social outcomes and worker vulnerability in small-scale fishing and aquaculture in Indonesia and Viet Nam

This study examines the specific role and impact of intermediaries through four case studies of small-scale seafood production in Southeast Asia.

Specifically, this study conducted research and developed four case studies to better characterize the financial relationships and potential impacts of intermediaries on the livelihoods of small-scale blue swimming crab (BSC) fishers and shrimp farmers in Indonesia and Viet Nam. The study was developed to improve our understanding of the role of intermediaries, the types of financial relationships that exist, key drivers and the impacts on social and environmental outcomes.
