Gender, Culture, and Northern Fisheries

Fishing often makes an important contribution to food security in northern regions, where agriculture is impossible or marginal at best, as well as providing important occupational and economic diversification in small and often remote communities. This book provides the reader with a current accounting of the generally under-recognized role of women in a variety of northern subsistence and industrial fisheries, both aboriginal and non-aboriginal, rural and urban-based in Alaska, Arctic Canada, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
