Abstract or Summary
  • Access restrictions to traditionally-used resources, that are associated with the establishment of marine protected areas (MPA), often generate conflicts. Public participation in decision-making process has been widely recognised as a critical factor in legitimising conservation policy and enhancing its success. This paper discusses fishers involvement issues in the context of the Iroise Sea where the first marine national park in France should be implemented. The aim is to understand why it is crucial for managers to involve local communities, and especially fishers. It also analyses the fishers motivations to get involved or not in such conservation strategy. In the Iroise case-study, fishers and their representatives have generally adopted a rather positive attitude toward the project. They claim for deeper participation in the decision-making process and in future management institutions of the park. The analysis suggests that their goal is to get exclusive territorial rights, with local governance to implement sustainable fisheries.
