Northeast ecosystem component


As the link between fishermen, consumers, and the broader economy, markets play a key role in how fisheries operate. These linkages are complex, intertwining not only the global seafood market with your local fishmonger, or grocery store, but also regional labor, diesel prices, marine insurance, and other less obvious markets. They involve both social and economic relationships1,2, with community-supported fisheries representing a special case of direct sales between fishermen and consumers3-5.
