Abstract: From the introduction: "World fisheries are good examples of the magnitude of the changes affecting common property resources. They illustrate the pressures exerted on tradition in an age of globalization that is characterized by the expansion of markets and the integration of environmental policies. Globalization of environmental policy is affecting fisheries in the recovery of overfished stocks, the vesting of use rights, the protection of biodiversity and the advancement toward ecosystem management. This manuscript focuses on biodiversity protection as an example of the challenges associated with finding an effective blend of tradition and change in an era of globalization and in moving from theory to practice."
