Part 2: Resource Flows and Economic Development
Resources and Infrastructures in the Maritime Economy, 1500-2000

This section explores the flow of resources and the economic development of the international shipping industry through analysis of three separate components. The first sub-section provides a thorough history of Danish maritime resources and infrastructures in relation to both shipping and fishing in the Danish coastal zone between 1500 and 2000, charting in particular the activity and economy of coastal dwelling communities. The second sub-section explores the resources and infrastructures in the maritime economy of rural south-west Scotland between 1750 and 1850, with particular emphasis on local economic revival and expansion efforts. It determines that entrepreneurship and expertise were vital to the success of a port, and intrinsically linked to local needs and culture. The final sub-section explores the fishing industry in relation to fishing rights in the postwar period. It uses the North Sea herring industry as a case study to demonstrate that post-war fishing developments centred on political exclusions and a shift from international to national fishing boundaries.
