For the week of 08 February 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Marine Policy has published a new paper on the Testing fisher-developed alternatives to fishery management tools for community support and regulatory effectiveness. The authors interviewed fishers in St Croix, USVI's mutton snapper fishery. "The interview results suggest that fishers view management tools in terms of spatial and temporal parameters, and how much those regulations influence gear selection." You may access the full-text using the link above, but please note that it is only freely-available from Elsevier for a limited time.
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.
