Abstract: "A comparative study of compliance among Norwegian and Newfoundland inshore fishers revealed moral distinctions between food and money, moderation and excess. While violations of government regulations were generally accepted in food fisheries, they were met with moral unease or informal sanctions in commercial fisheries. These findings are discussed in relation to the moral meanings of money and food, and subsequently accounted for in the light of a theory of two moral spheres of economic activity in economies based on harvesting of natural resources for both household and the market."
