Fishing People of the North: Cultures, Economies, and Management Responding to Change

27th Lowell Wakefield Fisheries Symposium

Hilton Downtown Anchorage Hotel
Anchorage, Alaska
September 14–17, 2011

Contact: Courtney Carothers,

This international symposium is a forum for scholars, fishery managers, fishing families, and others to explore the human dimensions of fishery systems and the growing need to include social science research in policy processes. It will be a place for sharing what we have learned about the opportunities and constraints that fishing people in northern countries encounter in a time of significant environmental, social, and economic change. Diverse panels and presentations will address sources and effects of external impacts on fishing people and their communities.
