Description

Interdisciplinarity is the hallmark of "Fishing Places, Fishing People." It proposes a radically different way of thinking about our current fishery problems and lays the groundwork for an alternative management approach to the fisheries. Comprised of entirely new material, the collection brings together the work of many highly-regarded scholars - historians, biologists, sociologists, anthropologists, consultants, geographers, and ecologists - to discuss this topical issue. Using case studies drawn from across Canada, they demonstrate that there are many shared issues in the various small-scale fisheries of this country, and locate Canadian small-scale fisheries in their historical context as well as in that of global ecological and policy concerns.
