    This Small-scale Fisheries Brief is tailored to provide insight into the contribution of small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in the United Republic of Tanzania. Small-scale fisheries are the largest source of fish supply (96%) in the country and will continue to be so for decades to come. Fish from small-scale fisheries are one of the most affordable nutritious, affordable and accessible food sources. Over 34.8 million people are nourished from fish supplied from small-scale fisheries in the United Republic of Tanzania, contributing to the fight against malnutrition and hunger. In addition, small-scale fisheries provide immense economic benefits, particularly in rural environments. At least 4.5 million people depend at least partially on small-scale fisheries livelihoods in the United Republic of Tanzania, with one in four people employed being women. The sector has an essential role in transforming the United Republic of Tanzania’s future food system and securing the Sustainable Development Goals by contributing to healthy and sustainable diets, equitable livelihoods and leaving no one behind in the fight against hunger and poverty. However, small-scale fisheries face multiple threats and challenges, such as shocks (due for example to climate change or COVID-19), poor governance and post-harvest waste and loss which undermine the potential benefits to society. Strengthening the commitment and implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) can help safeguard and enhance small-scale fisheries’ contributions to sustainable development and food systems in the United Republic of Tanzania. Strategies are needed to reduce fish waste and loss and the inequalities across value-chains, as well as to promote equitable trade, governance and utilization of fish as food.
