- Fisher poverty is not a uni-dimensional phenomenon.
- Fisher deprivation cannot be wholly captured by measures of income-poverty alone.
- Fishers may not necessarily always be the poorest of the poor.
- Fisheries households/communities are not all equally vulnerable.
- Survival often demands of fishers to participate in a variety of income-generating activities.
- Although macro and sectoral policy can reduce poverty within the fisheries sector, specific, local policy interventions may also be necessary
- There is no-size-fits-all approach to poverty reduction in fisheries.
- There is an imperative to develop more appropriate frameworks to guide our research on understanding both the complexity and drivers of poverty.
