Abstract:
Fishing communities along the Channel and southern North Sea are facing challenges and changes at a time of strict regulation and measures to address the ‘crisis’ in fisheries. GIFS is major a project funded by Interreg IVa 2 Seas and aims to understand the socio-economic and cultural importance of inshore fishing to better inform fisheries policy, coastal regeneration strategies and sustainable community development by:

  • Identifying best practice in coastal zone governance and marine fishing
  • Exploring the social and cultural values of fishing places and communities
  • Valuing the economic benefits of inshore fishing
  • Understanding grassroots perspectives on inshore fishing through the ‘voice’ of communities
  • Creating a ‘snapshot’ of fishing life at the start of the 21st century
