Adaptive capacity of aquaculte: Insights from the Chilean mussel industry

This thesis will explore the emergence of bridging social capital as a result of different policy and management measures implemented in the small scale fishery of the V region of Chile. The thesis will use social network analysis to explore the possible existence of “shadow networks” which emerge and then become latent in time as a result of fisher organization engagement. Results are relevant for the design of new innovative management practices which are part of the new Chilean fisheries and aquaculture Law and which imply the construction of problem solving arenas through stakeholder participation. The thesis will theoretically link multicriteria analysis with social network theory.
