Collective Action for Local-Level Effort Regulation: An Assessment of Recent Experiences in Senegalese Small-Scale Fisheries
AbstractThe 1990s several important fishing communities along teh Senegalese coastline have adopted effort-restraining schemes on their own initiative ought retain attention. In particular, four central questions deserve to be investigated: (1) Have these schemes been motivated by market power or by resource management considerations? (2) Are they effectively run and have they been proven to be sustained? (3) What types of fishermen do apprear to be most convinced or most supportive of effort-limiting measures; and is it possible to understand the characteristics of supportive fishermen in the light of available economic theory? (4) What are the reasons behind the varying incidence of success of such measures in different points of the Senegalese coastline?
