This special section focuses on vulnerability and resilience among fisheries stakeholders in the Northeast U.S. While the cases are situated in the Northeast, conclusions and approaches are likely to resonate for those working on similar issues elsewhere. We have made an effort to bring together researchers whose work has used a variety of methods
and approaches. Through ethnography, case study research, interviews, participant observation, and quantitative data analysis, each researcher is helping to elucidate the concepts of vulnerability and resilience. While not all the papers herein are congruent and some may even be controversial, each contributes to the study of the community vulnerability and resilience in the context of fisheries management.
