There exists a lack of information about many of the social, economic and ecological links within coastal Small-Scale Capture Fisheries; such knowledge is pertinent to the future sustainable exploitation and management of marine ecosystems by coastal communities. To conserve natural resources for future generations, sustainable management of natural resources is necessary. Sustainable resource management can help ensure that the use of resources does not cause an imbalance in the environment, and increasingly, sustainable management practices are being encouraged to preserve both animal and plant life for the benefit of future generations. Supply Chain Management is the active management of supply chain activities. It represents a conscious effort by supply chain managers to develop and run supply chains in the most effective way to meet Consumer demand. However,the vast majority of research and practice regarding sustainable supply chains has followed an instrumental logic, which has led firms and supply chain managers to place economic interests ahead of environmental and social interests. Ecologically Dominant Sustainable Supply Chain Management is a planning and decision-making process that seeks to coordinate and balance the social, economic and environmental demands of resource use to achieve long term sustainability. In this thesis, the Sustainable Supply Chain Management of the Lipsi Small-Scale Capture Fishery has been approached from a Sustainable Supply Chain Management perspective. The thesis interrogates the seafood supply chain of ‘place’ (The Municipality of Lipsi) by taking into consideration each ‘stage’ of the seafood supply chain; expressed here as Habitat, Assemblage, Fishery, Market and Consumer. In adopting q novel Conceptual Framework this thesis provides a platform for Small-Scale Capture Fishery research to move beyond ‘Catch to Market’ thinking (that treat’s the ocean as a ‘black box’ or homogenous entity) and helps to articulate the heterogeneous roles that coastal habitats play in provisioning Small-Scale Capture Fishery seafood supply chains. Furthermore, it aims to provide an intuitive and accessible platform for inter-disciplinary discussion, be that between business managers, ecologists, socio-ecological researchers, fisheries managers or local stakeholders.
