The blue economy and well-being in a small island destination

Abstract
This study aims to examine the Blue Economic Paradigm (BEP) application to a small island destination. Oceans are increasingly critical in linking countries through trade and as a source of directly providing and supporting the livelihood of many countries around the globe. Small islands are in desperate need of economic and social sustainability, striving to overcome scale constraints and propel economic development and diversity (Croes, Ridderstaat, and Van Niekerk, 2018). BEP is a developmental approach that could assist small island destinations to achieve their developmental goal of sustainability. This study's main contribution is to explore the complexity of BEP as applied to resident’s well-being in a small island destination.
