This article examines the precarious relationship between voice, acknowledgment, and latent subjectivity in Barbadian fisherfolk during participatory planning. It first contextualizes their exclusion from the west coast, then gives attention to the Folkestone Marine Park and Reserve participatory planning initiative. Second, it analyzes how fisherfolk express alienation. The causes include discourses of development and modernity; the culture of Barbados's political independence from the United Kingdom in 1966; how civil servants behave during participatory planning projects; and perceptions of fishing communities. Finally, it discusses how empirical research influenced pragmatic solutions developed by fisherfolk with the author. These involved working with British High Commissions to change thinking about what Caribbean development consultancy means
