Abstract: "American fisheries and grazing lands share a history of common use. This paper explores the origins and evolution of resource management policies and associated institutional structures designed to allocate and manage the use of these resources. The physical and historical conditions that characterize each system will be compared. Explored also are the ecological and sociological implications of current trends in policy and management, and contemporary policy debates, particularly as they exacerbate or mitigate inequities in resource allocation."
