Abstract or Summary
  • There is an increasing realisation among fisheries managers that fisheries management must include participatory approaches, because fisheries management need to address complex issues including many interests, disciplines and issues. It is also becoming generally accepted that fisheries management cannot be based on simple predictability of nature and fisheries behaviour, but must take an adaptive approach. Fisheries management must therefore develop into participatory learning systems accepting and able to handle the uncertainties and risks associated with management in uncertain situations. In this paper, we will discuss how (future) fisheries managers can be trained to address these challenges. One solution to this problem is to turn the challenge of developing management as a participatory learning system into a strength to address the education need: development of fisheries management as a learning system is also an opportunity for the participants in management to learn – a learning system is in any case based on the participants in the system learning. Developing mechanisms to transfer the experiences from adaptive management back to fisheries managers in a structured and systematic way can do this. The learning process is thus both a part of and a prerequisite for adaptation. In recent years there have been various attempts to develop institutional structures for extensive cooperation between government authorities at different levels and fishers/fishing communities in respect to data collection, consensus building about knowledge, management decisions and implementation. We discuss how such structures can contribute to education through research projects coupled to fisheries management in an adaptive context, the results of which are then disseminated to participants as an ongoing part of the management decision making process. Such processes have been implemented in some management systems including co-management arrangements.
