Ocean acidification, temperature rise, deoxygenation etc. damage fisher livelihoods and coastal economies, while data insufficiencies make identifying mitigation or adaption strategies tough. SmallScaleOA (SSOA) incentivizes data-sharing for coastal research and transparent, traceable seafood. Using phones, satellites, blockchain, and IoT, SSOA will exponentially decrease data collection costs, increase the inclusivity and community-relevance of scientific research, and fill knowledge gaps, while equitably compensating data producers and processors.
