Fishfolk -- Fisheries Social Science Network


About Fishfolk
English (USA)

Fishfolk is an email discussion list devoted to fisheries issues of interest to social scientists, fishermen, biologists, managers, government officials, conservation group members, attorneys, and other academics. In some cases, individual members are in positions of authority or serve as experts consulted by decision-makers. Discussions on the network provide unparalleled opportunity for crossing traditional barriers among the different groups who consider themselves "stakeholders" in the fisheries. Through these discussions, members also communicate lessons learned in one part of the globe that can help instruct others, and aid in sustaining the world's fisheries.
