What Does Feminist Methodology Contribute to Gender and Fisheries Science?


In this article I try to create a bridge between the methods and methodology of feminist approaches and those of biotechnical sciences as practised by the vast majority of researchers on gender in fisheries and aquaculture. In describing the history of feminist appropriation and development of social science methodology, I attempt to identify features of feminist approaches that would be useful to gender in fisheries and aquaculture research. I try to provide background for researchers new to qualitative research and to feminist approaches to understand the underlying issues and thus to develop research methods and methodologies that suit their particular field of work and which reflect their commitment to greater equality and recognition for gender issues in fishery and aquaculture research.
