This is a study of the relationship between coastal ecology and the practices of coastal communities that depend on it for livelihood. The study adopts a social-ecological approach to highlight the interrelationships between the physical, ecological, and social processes that constitute artisan fishing practice. It aims to understand the impacts of coastal infrastructure projects and land reclamation that is likely to adversely affect the livelihoods of Mumbai’s fisherfolk.

On 8th March 2019, the report was released at a press conference by fishworkers organizations, environmental and human rights groups. This report has been tendered in the High Court in the matter of the fisherfolk.

The full report will soon be available online for public circulation on this site.
