Fishing communities have faced numerous challenges over the past twenty years, including reform of the European Common Fisheries Policy and environmental, economic and social instability. But the households, businesses and places that depend on fishing have often displayed remarkable levels of resilience and ability to adapt. In this Special Issue contributors from Europe uncover the social structures and institutions that underpin the adaptive capacities of fishing households and businesses. Are adaptation strategies available to all and what might be their outcomes for different participants within fishing households and communities?
