Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For two decades the idea of governments and fishers working together to manage fisheries has been advocated, questioned, disparaged and, most importantly, attempted in fisheries from North and South America through Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. This book is the first time these experiences have been pulled together in a single volume, summarized and explained. The Fisheries Co-management Experience begins with a review of the intellectual foundations of the co-management idea from several professional perspectives. Next, fisheries researchers from six global regions describe what has been happening on the ground in their area. Finally, the volume offers a set of reflections by some of the best authors in the field. The end result describes both the state-of-the-art and emerging issues for one of the most important trends in natural resources management.

Book News Annotation:

Broadly, co-management is here defined as a collaborative and participatory process of regulatory decision-making between representatives of user-groups, government agencies, research institutions, and other stakeholders. After setting out the basic idea and process, scientists from a range of disciplines relate experiences with fisheries in many parts of the world, among them Africa, North America, and Southeast Asia and Bangladesh; identify multiple stakeholders from marine reserves, recreation fishing, and other fields; and explore edge issues such as the knowledge base for management decisions, representation, and the place of civil society.
