Paperback : 9780919666856, 180 pages, February 1993


Dangling Lines asks: How should the fishery be managed so that both fish stocks and fishing communities survive? What is worth preserving and what should be changed in traditional practices and values? What is a sensible public policy for coastal communities and what problems should the industry solve by itself?

In the discussion of these and other questions, there is much here for Canadian fishers, plant managers, government officials, development officers and fishing communities caught up in the catastrophe of failing and vanishing fish stocks.


"Jentoft is to be commended for courageously offering recommendations. And he presents a theory and method we all can use to find ways to maintain sustainable development of fisheries and of the towns that support coastal people. I strongly recommend this book. "
