"This is a study of Northern Norway and Atlantic Canada, two regions experiencing a severe crisis due to overexploitation of fisheries resources. The work of a group of researchers from Canada, Norway, and the United States, it examines the implications of common market integration, privatized resource management, and small business development policies for fishery-dependant communities in terms of long-term sustainability and participatory democracy. The book is brokeninto three sections: an examination of the economic and institutional hist ory of the fisheries in Norway and Atlantic Canada, a study of the regulatory regimes used in the fisheries of these two regions, and an analysis of reactions in three communities, two in Canada [Sambro, Nova Scotia and Fogo Island, Newfoundland] and one in Norway [Bugoynes], to the decline and collapse of fish stocks. Comparative, multidisciplinary, and multinational in approach, it is a major contribution to the literature on fishing regulations, the role of the state, and resource development in the North Atlantic." -from the dustjacket.
