Interactive Governance for Small-Scale Fisheries: Global Reflections

Editors: Svein Jentoft and Ratana Chuenpagdee

MARE Publication Series, Vol. 13

Svein Jentoft (The Norwegian College of Fisheries Science) and Ratana Chuenpagdee (Memorial University) release an 800-page book titled “Interactive governance for small-scale fisheries: global reflections”, published by Springer. The book is an edited volume of 35 case studies from around the world, written by 70 authors, all applying the same theoretical governance framework to examine challenges facing small-scale fisheries and explore avenues for improved governance. The book is a unique contribution to the discourse about fisheries governance, offering lessons and reflections about types, forms and functionality of governance and governing institutions that are most suitable to certain fisheries contexts. Taken together, the case studies highlight how some governance arrangements are far more sensitive to small-scale fisheries situations, and are more conducive to capitalizing on opportunities that exist therein.
