Abstract

This essay demonstrates the interdisciplinary methodology underscoring a multilevel research collaboration titled: 'Social Research for Sustainable Fisheries (SRSF)'. Sited in Northeastern Nova Scotia, this Community-University Research Alliance was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. SRSF researchers crafted a unique partnership with two fish harvester organizations, and a Mi'kmaq organization. This paper also highlights key issues concerning multilevel (individual, organizational and governmental) action and interdisciplinary research initiatives. Among these are the ways and means for negotiating and reconciling conflicting agendas, the meaning and substance of local empowerment, and the need for an outcomes commitment that moves beyond rhetorics of good intentions.
