Abstract or Summary
  • As fisheries management becomes more collaborative by seeking input and involvement from stakeholders, it is important to understand and address the diversity of those stakeholders. Gulf Coast fisheries communities include diverse racial and ethnic groups, particularly a large number of Vietnamese Americans involved in all aspects of the seafood industry. Recent disasters, including hurricanes and the BP Macondo oil spill, have exposed a number of communication barriers between state and federal agencies and the Vietnamese American fishing community on the Gulf Coast as well as a lack of reliable socioeconomic data on Vietnamese American fishers and their management and governance priorities. This research focuses on a mixed methods approach to create a database of key baseline socioeconomic data on the Vietnamese American communities affected by fishery management in Mississippi and Alabama and as well as to identify avenues and barriers for communication between Vietnamese American fishers and state and federal fisheries-related agencies in the region. In doing so, we discuss using a combination of 1) face-to-face surveys with Vietnamese Americans in the fishing industry, 2) interviews with representatives of relevant state and federal agencies, 3) interviews with community organizations and key informants, and 4) focus groups with Vietnamese Americans in different aspects of the fishing industry. Collection of this type of data will be used in identifying potential strategies to improve engagement of Vietnamese American stakeholders in the region and be crucial to understand the current and future consequences of management choices for diverse stakeholders.
