Fishery is conducted worldwide to secure a food source, and if fish is sustainably managed, it can provide a stable protein-rich source with a low environmental footprint. The fishery is, among others, conducted by small-scale inshore fishermen who are fishing to ensure their livelihood. In Denmark, fisheries management is based on the framework outlined in the EU. It is then the National government’s task to manage fisheries within this framework. Management in Denmark has contribute to a state, where fishermen in small-scale inshore fishery are leaving, and the small harbours are closing. To support the fishery, this thesis outlines the challenges fishermen from the coastal communities Bagenkop and Spodsbjerg identify, the
scenarios that can be synthesised based on the challenges, and finally, which interventions could be implemented to support continued fishery. The main challenge the fishermen in Bagenkop identified is the potential ban on trawl as fishing gear because it would mean they are not allowed to fish near their homes. In Spodsbjerg, the primary challenge is predators destroying catches and a lacking collection and transport of the fish to the fish auctions. To accommodate these challenges, the government must re-evaluate the total ban on trawl, support the infrastructure monetarily, and look into opportunities to regulate the predators destroying catches.
