SOCIALSHIFT (Social transformations of marine fisheries) investigates how fisheries can respond successfully to environmental and social challenges. Due to pressing local and global issues, fisheries are undergoing profound and long-lasting changes. This project reunites studies from different disciplines in a global database to identify the drivers and inhibiting and enabling conditions for social transformations of marine fisheries, combining the structural perspective with biographical interviews to explore what social transformations mean to individual people in marine fisheries and how their actions and mental processes shape these transformations and link to ecological factors.
