Abstract or Summary
  • This paper, that follows from the ongoing Ecost project, departs from the reality of marine biodiversity degradation in the Caribbean. It first enquires how local fishing communities appreciate and measure the degradation of marine biodiversity. In this connection, it asks whether communities have social and cultural attachments to particular species. Then the paper discusses collective responses to degradation in general, and in particular to the implementation of marine protected areas. Underlying these collective responses are values that reflect what is held to be of cultural importance. The final section therefore discusses the values that figure in the Caribbean region.
