Abstract: "How can legitimate local management be created in a situation initially lacking respect for both local authority and federal government regulations? This question is addressed through examination of the 18-year history of what became an effective local regulatory regime for clams in an aboriginal community in British Columbia, Canada. After considering structural conditions favoring local management in the fishery, the community, and governance arrangements, four stages in the development of legitimate local management are examined, considering the roles of regulatory, scientific, political, and moral legitimacy. Eight hypotheses regarding the larger question of legitimate fisheries regulations are confirmed or proposed."
