Grenada case study: The legalisation of beach seine traditional rules at Gouyave.

Abstract

Research and industry consultations on the beach seine rules in Grenada have lead to them being recommended for legalisation. This case researched how fisheries stakeholders and the government may approach this in the case of Gouyave, a west coast town known as the fishing capital of Grenada, where beach seining for coastal pelagics and small-scale longlining for tunas are very interactive fisheries. A variety of conflicts have arisen out of these interactions.
