Influencing Management from the Bottom Up in Port Orford, Oregon, and San Juan County, Washington



In communities throughout the world, fishermen, community leaders, scientists, and agency managers are working together to advance marine conservation. These efforts often emerge in an ad hoc manner, without high-level political endorsement, a legislative or administrative framework, or much in the way of resources. As a result, community-based processes face a unique set of challenges. They require motivated individuals who step up and take leadership, and they need to find ways to establish their legitimacy and credibility so that others take them seriously. They have to be entrepreneurial in attracting resources and building capacity.
