Marine Systems in India
Divya Karnad

I have worked in marine systems in India for nearly a decade now. I started off as a conservation activist, then as an ecologist, but at present, I am trying to understand fisheries in India as a coupled human-natural system. With the help of Dr Bonnie McCay and Dr Kevin St. Martin, my research will explore the patterns and processes involved in access and control of Indian fisheries, as they are constituted and bound at different scales of governance. Fishing communities in India are poorly understood, and they remain at the fringes of politically active society. Still, fishing communities have come together in the past to create national-level political actions that have repercussions on who gets to fish and where they get to do so. I will compare across communities to look for the drivers and consequences of differing patterns of access and control over fishing grounds.
