dc.description.abstract "The Bluff oyster fishery became part of New Zealand fisheries Quota Management System (QMS) in 1998 and management responsibility fell to the owners of individual transferable quota (ITQ). A group of conservation-minded Bluff oyster fishermen believe that the owners of ITQ are locked into a need for exploitation that will ultimately result in the fishery's demise. The proposition that private property rights encourage conservation through the self-interest of owners is questioned in a situation where establishing those property rights has meant the exclusion of conservation-minded fishermen. Conservation-minded fishermen play an important role in the fishery viewed as a socio-ecological system. The concept of belonging is proposed as a complement to the idea of ownership in the theory of property-rights regimes aimed at managing local resources." en_US
