Resumen del proyecto:

The social science of fisheries management is a relatively recent, but expanding and rapidly maturing, field of research activity. However, unlike either fisheries science or fisheries economics, the activities of the social sciences remain fragmented among several cognate disciplines and dispersed among a large number of academic institutes, with no integrating organisational framework. As a consequence, the dissemination of research findings and the impact on policy debates have been weak. Accordingly, the overall aim of ESSFiN is to develop an active network of social scientists engaged in policy relevant research in fisheries management, with the following objectives:

(i) to review the current state of social science research relating to fisheries management;

(ii) to identify key issues for social science research particularly in areas relating to the strategic behaviour of fishermen, institutional arrangements for fisheries management and the impact of alternative regulatory systems on fishing communities and fisheries dependent areas;

(iii) to develop opportunities for greater collaborative involvement in policy relevant research in fisheries management and development; and

(iv) to facilitate the provision of appropriate socio-economic advice to policy makers.
