Project description

English EN

The socioeconomic value of small fisheries

European Union fleets are dominated by small-scale vessels, which contribute to almost 50 % of employment in EU fisheries. The EU-funded SSF-value project will identify and valuate the socio-cultural and economic contributions of small-scale fisheries to rural coastal communities. The focus will be on the Galician coast of Spain where the project will apply an interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary methodology involving scholars from social and economic sciences, as well as stakeholders. The aim of the project will be to fill knowledge gaps so that small-scale fisheries are no longer overlooked.
