Abstract: From p. 2-3: "Our aim is to understand the legal and customary framework in which the local subsistence fisheries take place in order to contribute with proposals for a sound environmental management of this activity. Our main questions are: 1. How specific norms at the local level are contributing to reduce conflict in the access to fisheries. 2. What are the implications of these norms for governance and for the development and reform of resource use practices? 3. What local and regional, political economic and discursive conditions explain the emergence of governance around fisheries management? 4. How decentralization can contribute to strengthen governance emerging from the grassroots?"
