Holm’s article delves into an important issue that parallels additional challenges currently facing many fi sheries social scientists. How can fi shermen’s ecological knowledge (fek) be incorporated into fi sheries management policy without reducing it to simply another version of orthodox fi sheries science, stripped of its value as something apart and enlightening by its own merit? He argues that the techniques researchers use to legitimize fek suffi ciently for application in policy removes its ‘contextualization’. In the process, fek reverts to a version of standardized science typical of Mode-1 science, far from the ideal of Mode-2 science posited by Nowotny et al. (2001).
