Abstract
"The theory and practice of community-based self-management and government/community co-management is examined in terms of the potential of these management systems to address some of the major biological, economic, and political problems of the salmon fishery of British Columbia, Canada. Particular attention is given to government/multi-party arrangements which integrate the concerns of multiples interests, while recognizing the special rights of aboriginal communities. Elements identified as key to the success of various arrangements included logistical, cost-sharing and power-sharing arrangements. The processes engendering social learning through which government and local bodies could move toward such regimes, are discussed through a review of relevant literature on inter-organizational collaboration, public policy, and organizational learning."
