Sample text

But there is no one “correct” perspective in a complex adaptive system. A fishing community may focus on livelihoods, regional managers on user-group conflicts, and the central government on export earnings from shrimp aquaculture. The perspective depends on the interest of the observer and their reading of the history and context of the fishery. A complex social-ecological system cannot be captured using a single perspective. It can be best understood by the use of a multiplicity of perspectives, which is one of the arguments for the use of participatory approaches in the management of social-ecological systems.

Yanez et al. present a case study of the knowledge needs in Chile to ensure the sustainable use of fisheries resources. They find that research in Chile has focused on fish biology studies, with little work on oceanographic, economic, social, or governance factors. They conclude that work which integrates the social and governance aspects with oceanographic, biological, technical, and economic factors of Chilean fisheries is essential to ensure their sustainability. The final chapter in this part, by Neis, is an important reminder that all knowledge is context-dependent, patchy and partial, and derives in part from the social-ecology of those who produce it.

As in the case of many African agricultural workers, HIV/AIDS infected fisher-folk are often too sick to work, becoming dependent on others and further stressing local food security and the local social-ecological system as a whole. Some international policies with the potential to impact national fisheries policy and practice should also be considered as part of globalization, with drivers affecting marine social-ecological systems. The well-known example here is the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries that is the most comprehensive set of guidelines yet devised to guide marine social-ecological systems toward sustainability.
