Researchers study links between conflict and fisheries in East Africa
Date:11/19/2012

s arise when conflicts about other things spill over and upset fisheries," says Glaser. "The focus of our study is to model those complexities and to look at feedbacks in the system, both human and natural."

"We've traditionally thought of food security as an issue of land-based agriculture," she adds, "but now we're thinking of it in terms of fisheries as well. That's because more than a billion people get their primary source of protein from fishes. It provides the primary source of income for more than 43 million people in the world, the majority of that in developing nations."

"Our goals are to understand the interrelationships of ecological processes and human social-political processes," says Hendrix. "If we do good science, good research, and work through the collaborative process, we can have a positive impact on natural-resource management that crucially can affect the lives and nutrition of more than 40 million people."
