Abstract/Summary The study reveals how fishing people in three Queensland regions have faced a series of challenges arising from management and policy changes, with only limited consideration of, and support for the social, personal and family implications of such change. Our research findings suggest that the current management focus on economic and ecological goals fails to sufficiently address the cumulative short and longer-term social impacts of fisheries change, in particular, the effect on the health, well-being and quality of life of the people interviewed for this study. These findings are analysed from the views and responses of the fishers and their families to the personal and social consequences they continue to endure.
