Regulation and Compliance in the Atlantic Fisheries: State/Society Relations in the Management of Natural Resources / Edition 1by Stig S. Gezelius
Pub. Date: 07/31/2003
Publisher: Springer Netherlands
Gezelius (Norwegian Agricultural Economics Research Institute) seeks to identify the reasons that fishermen choose to comply with or violate state regulations concerning the Atlantic fisheries. Organized as a comparative case study, the text examines the dynamics of compliance in two communities--one in Norway and one in Newfoundland--which depend on inshore and near-shore fishing and which are currently affected by government restrictions on fish harvesting. It addresses the relationship between collective morality and self-interest, and describes combinations of normative and strategic action. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
