Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

The Journal of Environmental Law has published the open access title, Rethinking Participation in Environmental Decision-Making: Epistemologies of Marine Conservation in South-East England. The article examines fishermen's engagement with new MCZs created under the UK's Marine and Coastal Access Act of 2009. You may access the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
