The AA. examine the perspectives of inshore fish harvesters from Change Islands, Newfoundland. They show that fishers are deeply concerned about ineffective regulations, low prices for their catch, and rationalization policies. They explain how existing regulations restrict traditional cooperative fishing practices and impose rules that are not suited for local environmental conditions. These conditions, combined with policies aimed at reducing the fishing fleet and barriers to youth involvement, threaten the long-term survival of coastal communities. They conclude that traditional fishing communities, along with the potential social, cultural, economic, and environmental benefits of smaller-scale, community-based fishing need to become more visible for these changes to occur
