Abstract or Summary
  • The ECOST project aims to develop a new approach for the evaluation of fishing activities and policies in order to contribute to a better management of aquatic resources which affect sustainable development in coastal zones around the world. It has to be seen from the wider perspective of equipping public decisionmakers and society with the appropriate tools and methods needed to take into account, not only immediate economic and social profits, but also the costs engendered by fishing activities, which relate as much to ecosystems as to societies. The novelty and originality of the suggested approach doesn’t rely on the concept chosen for the analysis, the social cost, but on the way it is built and mobilised to deliberate on the evaluation of fishing activities. As Fisheries activity is a complex system, characterized by reciprocal interactions between fisheries activity and the harvested resource, it is difficult to define the effects of such activities in the society. The social cost is thus defined as an articulation between the frontiers of what is feasible? and the assessment of members of the society concerning what will be judged desirable? (O’Connor 2004). We propose an evaluation process defining the performance issue related to fishery metiers, a set of indicators and a method to assess the social cost using the Kerbabel Deliberation Matrix framework.
