Sociocultural aspects of fisheries management
Date of Original Version
This paper examines specific sociocultural impacts of management decisions and outlines data needs concerning these impacts. Suggestions are made concerning the integration of sociocultural data with bio-economic data as a means for developing models to quantitatively evaluate trade-offs between biological, social, and economic aspects of fisheries management. Relevant aspects of the social environment of the development and implementation of fisheries management plans are also examined in an attempt to outline factors which could facilitate the process. Finally, traditional techniques of fisheries management are described as a means of indicating that, in some cases, effective systems of management have been developed by local fishermen, and that managers should use and/or learn from these systems wherever possible since they have been adapted to local the management of fish requires management of fishermen, and that is not a simple problem. © 1983 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
