Beschreibung:

A fishing community in Northwest Iceland has found a revolutionary way to regulate the shrimpfishery. This book is an ethnographic and sociological study of how the community and its shrimpfishers, marine biologists, and politicians struggle to come to terms with a new way of managing a marine resource. The impact is felt in the way shrimpfishers have had to redefine their own occupation and work. Center-periphery relations and relationships among several fishery sectors have also been affected. The research is based on the use of in-depth interviews, participant observation, private documents, and governmental records, providing fresh insights into grassroots acceptance of innovative marine-resource management policies.
Contents: Occupational Cultures; Northwest Iceland; Material and Social Parameters of Shrimpfishing; Occupational Culture as a Community of Skills; Shrimper Status in Larger Society; Center-Periphery Relations; Turning the Table of Empiricism; Socio-prototypical Aspects of Shrimpfishery.
