Life for Fisheries: Sociology and Rural Economy for Fishermen

Main Article Content

Meduya Okuye


There are comparatively few socio-economic conditions in the community, so the demand on coastal infrastructure to satisfy Community demands may, over the long term, be much greater. The level of education of the fishing community is still classified as poor and coastal community settlements, especially fishermen, are still not well organized under environmental conditions. In the long term, the demand on coastal services would be higher in order to satisfy Community needs, given the community's socio-economic circumstances which are comparatively poor in healthcare. Much in the coastal regions fishing was passed down by their descendants from generation to generation.
