Review of social and economic research in the fishery sector of the Philippines: a country paper
MetadataShow full item record
The problems confronting the fishery sector have received varying degree of attention from the government sector over time. In the past two decades the main thrust was to increase productivity through technology generation. In the late 1980s, however, the worsening problem of inequity in fisheries shifted the concern to the socioeconomic issues of sustainability and equity. This reorientation in emphasis is largely attributable to the contribution of social scientists. The study reviews completed and ongoing socioeconomic research in the fishery sector. This relates the focus of the studies in the sector. Research gaps and researchable areas were determined to identify future research directions. Moreover, this review aims to find out whether social scientists have responded to the needs and urgent issues of the sector.
