Inshore Fishing and Sustainability
- Coastal zone governance and marine fishing: analyse fisheries governance approaches and their relationship with broader coastal zone management; identity best practice in co-management, fisher-led conservation and local ecological knowledge approaches.
- Fishing places and community: through community-based activities, such as photographic exhibitions and focus groups, understanding how fishing contributes to community identity and social cohesion.
- Economy and regeneration in fishing communities: analyse the direct, indirect and induced benefits of marine fishing; estimate the non-market benefits of inshore fishing (e.g. amenity, recreation, heritage, tourism); understand the importance of fishing for tourism and broader regeneration programmes.
This is a project that will aim to bring together the economic, social and cultural perspectives in an integrated way. A broad range of stakeholders from policy, industry and local communities will be involved to ensure there are tangible impacts for the development of sustainable coastal communities.
In this project, the team of AGROCAMPUS OUEST in collaboration with Mélody Leplat of the Brittany school of management in Brest, will be in charge of the leadership of action on the Non-market values of inshore fishing (3.3). Besides the production of fishery tradable goods, inshore fishing provides non-market goods such as amenity, recreation, landscape & heritage. This action will evaluate these non-market values using a survey of resident and tourist preferences by estimating the willingness to pay (WTP) for these attributes.
