Description

Nineteen peer-reviewed articles are included in the proceedings of the 2011 symposium, Fishing People of the North: Cultures, Economies, and Management Responding to Change. Authors present research in the disciplines of anthropology, biology, and economics on fishing communities in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Russia, Japan, and Norway. Among many topics the papers present cultural responses to climate change effects, and transitions in fishing communities regarding permits, quotas, and target species. Articles also cover using local knowledge to preserve a fishery and to map subsistence patterns, and tribal involvement in fisheries management. Contributors share ways to address change and ensure that fishing remains a healthy, vibrant part of northern coastal communities.
