A livelihoods analysis of fishers in the Grenadine for caribbean LME
Fishing is a primary economic and social activity in the Grenadine islands. In order to obtain a sound understanding of both biological and human factors associated with the exploitation of marine and coastal resources, a livelihoods analysis of fishers was conducted. The first phase of the study involved an initial inventory to (1) identify the fishers of Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union, Petite Martinique and Carriacou, (2) determine what types of fishing they do, (3) document the types of fishing vessels and gears that are used and (4) obtain preliminary information on the locations of fishing hot spots.
