Abstract or Summary
  • In the 2002 CFP Reform, a potentially significant change that took place involved tentative steps toward increasing stakeholder participation if fisheries governance. Participation by the fishing industry (and conservation groups) in the management of fisheries is, in general, a positive thing. However, participation has many different ‘practical definitions,’ i.e. it means in different things in practice, and not all of them are the ideal ‘participation means we are all working together to improve fisheries management”. Participation may mean ‘we work for our goals and try to exclude others from the resource’. Perhaps the most common practical definition, however, is ‘participation means our chance to hold other stakeholders accountable. The present paper examines this last practical definition of participation - holding others accountable - in terms of its impact on scientific deliberations of the fishing industry’s general participation in fisheries governance. The focus is on the ICES system and the scientific deliberations around North Sea Cod. In this context, participation means accountability on a variety of levels. Because the EU managers must account to the fishing industry they demand that this advice be delivered in ways that facilitate this accountability. The scientists also feel directly accountable to the industry, which changes which issues they emphasize, and seek to ensure consistency and fairness in their advice beyond what is biologically justified. Through a micro-level examination of these impacts, the paper illuminates the dynamics of participation as it plays out in the real world.
