Abstract: Fishing and ancillary industries are commonly perceived to be of significant social and economic value by virtue of their geographic location. Past socio-economic studies of fisheries and related industries largely confined themselves to analysing demographic statistics and relating these to official port fish landings data and descriptions of processing and ancillary industries. Despite these efforts, a clear picture of why and how fisheries are of socio-economic significance has not yet been achieved. As a consequence there is little de-tailed understanding of how ecological, legislative and market related changes impact on fisheries dependent communities. This study of the Rossaveal Region was funded by Marine Institute in an attempt to assess the importance of demersal, shellfish and pelagic fisheries to peripheral Irish communities.
