This is a timely and relevant compilation of research and analysis on some of the critical socio-cultural issues facing fisheries management and fishing communities
A step towards a sustainable development paradigm for fisheries management
Explicitly incorporates a range of social and cultural issues
Themes include governance, local knowledge, livelihoods, gender, and identity
This volume is an interdisciplinary mix of perspectives and studies on social issues in fisheries from a diverse range of case studies and research disciplines. The case is made regarding the dearth of attention to socio-cultural considerations which to date have been largely treated as an externality of fisheries policy. It will be valuable to researchers and decision makers interested in understanding the social dimension of fisheries and provides a timely and relevant compilation of research and analysis on some of the critical socio-cultural issues facing fisheries management and fishing communities today.
