Project Details

Description of project aims

WP4. Assessment of Socio-Economic and Cultural Characteristics of the Scottish Inshore Fishery
Objective: To establish a new set of qualitative and quantitative data on the social, economic and cultural drivers of inshore fisheries.

Successful Applicant: SAMS Research Services Ltd. (SRSL)

Deliverables: The aim of WP4 is to supply an analytical framework and a clear conceptual and detailed description, citing extensive quantitative and interview evidence, to explain the drivers of a resilient inshore fisheries industry. SRSL will develop consultation surveys and a sampling programme to gather evidence from a range of sources including semi-structured interviews with individuals involved in the inshore industry. This mixed-method approach will be employed to produce case studies with high resolution data that provide detailed contextual information on the behaviour, familial and working relationships, beliefs and motivations and drivers for fishing activities by the Scottish inshore sector. The framework produced by SRSL will be designed to be repeatable for future updating and further studies.
