The Rhode Island Commercial Fishing Industry - Development of a Profile

 

Project Team:

Cornell University Cooperative Extension Marine Program - Emerson C. Hasboruck, John Scotti, Emerson G. Hasbrouck, Jacqueline Stent

 

Purpose of Research Project

The purpose of this research project is to develop, in a timely manner, an up to date profile of the Rhode Island commercial fishing industry that characterizes all fishing sectors (finfish, shellfish, crustaceans), including the harvesting and processing capacity of the industry, support businesses, the people engaged in this livelihood, the communities dependent on fishing, and the overall significance of the commercial fishing industry to local, state, and regional economies to better inform decision-making connected with economic development, potential buy out programs, marine spatial planning initiatives, infrastructure investments, and community planning, particularly waterfront development.
