How fisheries react to environmental and social challenges
A wide range of local and global challenges require fisheries to plunge into deep and enduring transformations. These can be difficult to forecast and invert and can also have extensive impacts on fish stocks, ecosystems and society. However, little is known about why some fisheries succeed in transforming themselves while others fail to do so. The EU-funded SOCIALSHIFT project will study how fisheries successfully react to environmental and social challenges. It will integrate studies from different disciplines in a global database to determine the reasons for such challenges and the restraining as well as enabling conditions for social changes in marine fisheries. Through individual interviews, it will investigate what social changes signify to individuals and how they shape and connect this transformation to ecological factors.
