The provision of public services to small-scale fisheries communities is increasingly being recognised as an issue in the broader support of livelihoods, and in creating the conditions in which issues of poverty, vulnerability and resource management can be successfully addressed.

Apart from the direct aims of supporting good practice in fisheries management, services in health, education, infrastructure, public information and political access are essential for reducing vulnerability, increasing opportunities, and increasing the resilience of individuals, households and communities. These are often under-provided, particularly in remoter areas, and fishery sector policies and development investment are increasingly focusing on improving public services and their impacts.
