Title: Compliance in Western Pacific Fisheries
Short Name: Compliance
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2018
Abstract:

This inport record serves as a repository for two PIFSC Human Dimensions projects that examined the role of compliance in Western Pacific Fisheries. The first project examined the 'seascape' of compliance or the scope of compliance issues in the Western Pacific Region. For this project, we conducted 29 unstructured interviews with compliance experts across the region and conducted a detailed literature review on scientific studies published on compliance in this geography. The second project used qualitative research methods (38 unstructured interviews with Hawaii longline captains, owner-operators, and crew) to better understand the role that Hawaii longline fishers play in further reducing protected species bycatch in the Hawaii longline fishery.

Purpose:

The purpose of these projects was to use a variety of social science research methods to improve both regulatory and non-regulatory compliance in Western Pacific fisheries.

Data Quality

Representativeness:

Seascape of Compliance interviews included a balance of perspectives from federal and state government, resource management agencies, non-governmental organizations, communities, academia, and fishing industry.

The Hawaii longline interview data are not statistically representative of the population, but do mirror most industry strata.

Accuracy:

This dataset only includes qualitative interview data, therefore this is unavailable.

Analytical Accuracy:

N/A

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

N/A

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

N/A

Quantitation Limits:

N/A

Comparability:

There is a temporal aspect to both of these interview datasets in that both sets of interviews were conducted at a certain point in time, so that must be taken into consideration before comparing it to past and future efforts.

Completeness Measure:

Complete in terms of qualitative data saturation.

Precision:

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Both authors reviewed interview data and analysis. Both authors conducted interviews and took separate interview notes in many instances.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1033597
Description:

We employed a qualitative research approach and primarily used unstructured, open-ended interviews to gather data. To identify fishers for interviews, we employed a non-probabilistic sampling approach, which combined two different sampling methods: intercept sampling and snowball or network sampling

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1033598
Description:

All 38 interviews were conducted in person between August and December 2019, with fishermen at Pier 38 and Pier 17 in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. We interviewed 30 captains or owner-operators and 8 crewmembers(including 2 American crew and 6 foreign crew: 3 Indonesian, 2 Filipino, and 1 Vietnamese). Interviewees included vessels that targeted bigeye tuna via deep-set gear, swordfish via shallow-set gear, and some that switched between both gear types.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 1033599
Description:

Data provided in this report were documented via detailed handwritten interview notes in interviewees’ primary languages, translated if necessary, then digitized. Data were then coded or binned into thematic areas (Miles and Huberman 1994) using a grounded theory approach (Corbin and Strauss 2008). All data are reported anonymously and no personally identifiable information is included in this report.
