Regional social and economic impacts of change in fisheries-dependent communities

Study published 15/03/2011

With Axis 4 of the EFF, the Common Fisheries Policy has widened its scope to address socio-economic development of local and regional communities depending on the fisheries sector. However, there is currently a scarcity of knowledge about how policy changes (both within the sector and more widely) have affected coastal communities dependent on fisheries in recent years, how important other factors have been as drivers of change, or indeed how communities have adapted and responded to change. This study explores such issues.
