Drawing on research in political ecology and building on anthropological critiques of common pool resource institutions, this research explores the historical, social, and political factors that influence how fisheries management occurs at the federal and territorial levels, and how commercial fishers, managers, and other stakeholders experience and participate in multi-scale management processes. I conducted my dissertation research in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands on this topic in 2009 – 2010. Similar research was then conducted on Guam in 2014.
