Stewardship and Risk: An Empirically Grounded Theory of Organic Fish Farming in Scotland
AbstractIt has long been assumed ownership gives farmers incentives to act as stewards for the land. On this basis, quasi-property rights are granted to fish farmers to encourage them to manage risks to the aquatic environment. This paper offers an empirically grounded theorization of fish farmersâ€™ perspectives on these issues. Data were gathered via field research with Scottish salmon farmers who had switched from conventional to organic fish farmersâ€™ risk management strategies offer little support for the view that property rights automatically create incentives for stewardship of the marine environment.
