Abstract
  • Social networks and social capital can facilitate or constrain collaborative arrangements which can enhance resource governance and adaptability in complex social-ecological systems such as fisheries. Yet, the impact of ethnic diversity among resource users on social network capital in the context of resource governance has not been previously examined. To explore this effect, a social network analysis of the entire population of resource users in Hawaii’s longline fishery was performed, which is currently characterized by a division along ethnic lines and competition over resource use. Results show that ethnicity significantly influences social network structure and is responsible for a homophily effect, with higher levels of bonding and bridging ties found within ethnic groups. In contrast to previous research on social capital, the greatest evidence of linking social capital ties was found in a minority ethnic group rather than the dominant ethnic group. However, results suggest that ethnic fragmentation may be responsible for the marginalization of another minority group, which reported a significantly low level of linking ties to industry leaders, government or management officials, and the scientific community. This study provides the first empirical evidence of the effect of ethnic diversity on social network capital in the fisheries literature, and has implications for the success of collaborative management.
