Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program (WGGP)

This lecture will examine three case studies: an Alaskan salmon fishery in which harvest rights were assigned to a harvesters’ cooperative; a U.S. fishery in which individual catch quotas were used to control the unintentional harvest of over-fished species; and a U.S. fishery in which a conservation organization encumbered fishing rights with ‘easements’ to promote protection of marine ecosystems.
