The Swedish fishing sector has been declining for decades and many coastal societies have few or no active fishermen. This development has raised questions regarding what values fisheries contribute with and what might get lost if the process continues. In this project the different values that commercial fisheries (both large- and small-scale) contributes with are analyzed. These could be fish produced for the market, but also other values such as cultural heritage. The project is financed by funds from EMFF received from the Swedish Rural Network and the Swedish Board of Agriculture.
The project will end in the summer 2019.
