Investigating Beyond the Scales. Interactive governance analysis of small-scale fisheries in the San Andrés Archipelago, Colombia
Small-scale fisheries are complex, diverse and dynamic. Therefore, to understand these fisheries, governance is favoured to management as a more comprehensive analytical framework that aims to catch issues and challenged beyond the technical aspects of management. Following a phronesis approach, embedding theory into reality, I chose the case study of the small-scale fisheries of the San Andrés archipelago for analysis. To do so, the interactive governance theory and its conceptual framework have been used as a guideline and theoretical material to cast light on the many challenges in small-scale fisheries governance. A judgement issued in November 2012 by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague serves to cast light on the many challenges in the governance and governability of small-scale fisheries. Main challenges are related to issues power, interaction and scale. I argue in this paper that analysis of small-scale fisheries should include interactions at multiple levels and scales. The focus cannot be limited to the level in which fishers interact directly. To understand risks and potential opportunities for governability improvement, multi-level and multi-scale analysis should be fostered. As few information regarding this perspective exist, further research is needed to develop the scale and level features of the interactive governance theory.

Dyspriani, Polite (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-05-29)Shrimp world production in the last few years has shown very high growth rates. It is marked by an increasing of production volume, and by shifting from capture to aquaculture fisheries within the production system. This has occurred mostly regarding to the brackish water pond. For some years, the government has had to face hard choices in order to ensure shrimp aquaculture developed sustainable. ...
Pettersen, Ingrid Marie; Aaknes, Vilde Synnøve (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2023-05-15)I dag er verdikjeden for fisk og skalldyr bygget opp rundt utnyttelse av et fåtall arter som kan fanges i store volum og med høy markedsverdi. Bruk av lite eller ikke utnyttede marine ressurser kan være en bærekraftig tilnærming for å innfri fremtidige krav og etterspørsel til fiskekonsum. Rødspette (Pleuronectes platessa) er den viktigste flatfisken i volum og verdi i europeiske fiskerier. Både ...
Nolde Nielsen, Kåre (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2008-11-21)What is the relationship between science and politics? What should it be? How are their respective roles conceived and acted out in practice? Should science and politics be clearly separated? How? Are there cases in which they can be usefully mixed? What cases are those, and are there some ways of mixing that are better than others? This project explores such questions by examining relationships ...
