Economic Decline, Fishing Bans, and Obstructive Politics: Is there a Future for Small-scale Fisheries in Romania’s Danube Delta?
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social and Economic Geography.
2019 (English)In: Status and resilience of small-Scale Fisheries in Europe: In the shade of the CFP reform and economic crisis / [ed] Maarten Bavinck, Jose Pascual-Fernandez, and Cristina Pita, Springer, 2019Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter describes small-scale fisheries (SFF) in Romania within their historical, economic, and political contexts. It focuses on SSF in the Danube Delta, which was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993. The chapter highlights that contemporary SSF are small in size, with very few economic opportunities and low capital intensity, yet vital to the Danube Delta’s remaining population. The condition of Romanian SSF is the result of failing post-socialist economic and environmental policies and ignorance of the problems that fishers have to deal with. As a result of flawed policies and environmental decline, the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve is poorly managed. Its implementation is characterized by a lack of interest in developing new economic opportunities for fishers and, more generally, underestimating the local importance of SSF. In order to maintain SSF in Romania, improved monitoring of fisheries data is needed as well as more economic opportunities.
