Abstract or Summary
  • Over the last decade, advocates of the interdisciplinary concept of social capital have celebrated the fact that elements of local social structures--embodied in social norms, networks and organizations--can significantly affect well-being in fishing communities. But does this concept bring anything to the study and practice of fisheries management that is not already known? This paper argues that value is added to the formation of fisheries policy by viewing elements of local social structures as a form of capital. When norms, networks and organizations are analyzed, in a microeconomic context, as potentially productive assets, they can properly be valued alongside physical, human, and natural capital. The paper details how doing so can promise to further increase the probability of sustainable use of many (but not all) local fisheries through specific investments in social capital.
