ICELANDIC FISHING PEOPLE'S ADAPTIVE RESPONSES TO CLIMATIC VARIABILITY: IMPLICATIONS FOR FISHERIES POLICIES

AUTHORS

MCGOODWIN, JAMES R. University of Colorado.



Abstract: This paper discusses preliminary findings and future plans regarding a research project which is aimed at exploring the dynamic linkages between Iceland's fishing people and climatic and marine-ecological variability, and change. Tentative suggestions will also be offered regarding the development of sustainable fisheries-management policies for Iceland's fishing people, who in the near future may have to cope with rapid climatic and environmental change.
