Abstract

This paper highlights how multi-scalar interstitial policy failings of the EU fisheries

artisanal communities, leading to further expansion opportunities for industrial fishing

to contextualize and demonstrate this complexity, we explore a detailed scenario of the

accession has destabilized long-existing functional fishing governance mechanisms

socio-ecological system. Using a mixed-method approach to investigate the partially

demonstrate how the coastal fisheries have become subject to multiple-use competition

“access-enabling policies,” and is, to a great extent uninhibited by fish conservation

ramifications of policy processes is necessary to improve the governance and

management of contested and congested open-access fisheries.
