This final chapter of the volume draws insights on the intangible aspects of social science expertise when studying people and the sea. Elaborating on the importance of the ‘hands around the methods’, it explores the skilful practices that prove essential to undertaking effective social science research in the context of coastal and maritime communities and marine environments. It also reflects on future directions for the marine social science community and considers how it can advance with greater incorporation of reflective and reflexive accounts.
