dc.description.abstract In the context of wide-spread, world-wide declines in fish stocks, such as the inshore fishery in the Benguela ecosystem along Gansbaai, fishers in Gansbaai partly rely on the availability of small pelagic fish (sardine and anchovy). However, fishers also hand-line and angle actively, and more recently practiced a range of other fishing techniques. Ten weeks of fieldwork in Gansbaai allowed the intertwined lived reality of fishers’ every- day practices to come to the fore. Regulation of techniques and target species has curtailed fishers through restrictive fishing rights, quotas and more recently the rise of protected areas such as Marine Protected Areas ... This project relates the situation of Gansbaai fishers in the face of a possible experimental closure of the waters surrounding nearby Dyer Island to purse seining, proposed in support of the conservation of African penguins. en_ZA
