Understanding the influence of social capital on social sustainability in an Australian trawl fishery
International Journal of Sustainable Development, 2016, vol. 19, issue 1, 36-53
Fisheries are about people as much as they are about biological resources. Social capital, founded on norms, trust, communication and connectedness between people within differing networks and groups, is an important attribute in sustaining fisheries. Robust social capital can support fishery stakeholders during times of challenge and change such as institutional arrangements and economic and resource fluctuations. This study reveals that low levels of social capital may inhibit social sustainability.
