Drury O’Neill, E., Lindahl, T., Daw, T., Crona, B. et.al. 2019. An Experimental Approach to Exploring Market Responses in Small-Scale Fishing Communities. Front. Mar. Sci., 14 August 2019 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fmars.2019.00491
Small-scale fishing communities are increasingly connected to international seafood trade via exports in a growing global market. Understanding how this connectedness impacts local fishery systems, both socially and ecologically, has become a necessary challenge for fishery governance. Market prices are a potential mechanism by which global market demands are transferred to small-scale fishery actors. In most small-scale fishe...

The majority of the world's fishers, fishworkers and their dependents live in coastal tropical areas that are, and will be, highly exposed to human-induced climate change. Projections indicate such change could result in coastal populations being more frequently and acutely impacted by natural disasters. Increasing aid interventions is a likely knock-on effect of such scenarios. How these external natural and social disturbanc...

Drury O’Neill, E., N.K., Asare, D.W., Aheto. 2018. Socioeconomic dynamics of the Ghanaian tuna industry: a value-chain approach to understanding aspects of global fisheries. African Journal of Marine Science, 40:3, 303-313, DOI: 10.2989/1814232X.2018.1513866
This study investigated how an industrial tuna fishery functions in terms of procedures, practices, governance and finance in the context of Ghana, West Africa. Tuna is Ghana’s biggest seafood export, contributing significantly to the domestic fisheries sector. A case-study approach was used to analyse relevant social and economic factors at the local scale to better understand how the global seafood industry operates in a low...
Drury O'Neill, E., B. Crona, A. J. G. Ferrer, R. Pomeroy, and N. S. Jiddawi. 2018. Who benefits from seafood trade? A comparison of social and market structures in small-scale fisheries. Ecology and Society 23(3):12.https://doi.org/10.5751/ES-10331-230312
We examine the benefits flowing from a coastal seascape through seafood trade to various social groups in two distinct small-scale fishery case studies. A knowledge gap currently exists in relation to how benefits from a fishery, and the associated trade, are ultimately distributed, specifically, how market structures and relations, and the combined dynamics of the local fishing society, can mediate these flows. Previous resea...

This article addresses the connections between value chain actors in the tropical-marine small-scale fisheries of Zanzibar, Tanzania, to contribute to a better understanding of the fisher-trader link and how connections in general might feed into livelihood security. A sample of 168 fishers and 130 traders was taken across 8 sites through questionnaires and observations. The small-scale fishery system is mapped using a value c...
