Provision of services for fisheries socio-economic survey for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi

The provision of consultants with expertise in marine fishery socioeconomic assessments to assist in Fisheries Socio–Economic Survey For The Emirate Of Abu Dhabi. Socio-economic profiles were developed by MRAG for each of the fisheries sub-sectors to allow estimation of the social and economic importance of these subsectors. These provided a baseline from which a socio-economic model was developed by MRAG. This tool enabled the estimation of the costs/benefits incurred to each sub-sector (to participant and operation level) associated with different levels of regulation (capacity reduction/increase) for each fishery. Training was provided to staff from Emirate and national ministries on the use of this model.
