Fish on the Move

Fishing Between Discourses and Borders in the Northern Adriatic

Benefits

  • Fish on the Move is one of the first books to ethnographically present the complex world of the North Adriatic region, a region that carries any number of historical and contemporary resonances with many other parts of Europe and the Mediterranean

  • It is also the first book in English to cover a topic of Slovene maritime fisheries, contributing importantly to the scholarly debate within the maritime anthropological studies

  • It pertains to an ethnographic area that is in many respects terra incognita for an English-speaking anthropological audience

About this book

Introduction

This book analyses the relation between different discourses and actors through an ethnographic approach, showing not only how fishermen in Slovenia respond to international political economy, how they struggle to survive but also how they generate small changes.Fishing in the northeastern part of the Adriatic Sea makes for a substantial economy anchored in many stories. Regional conflicts, wars, the demise of empires and the rise of nation states with ensuing maritime border issues, socialist heritage, transnational and transformational processes in Europe, and the growth of capitalist relations between production and consumption in coastal areas, have all contributed to the specific discourses that have affected this relatively under-researched area. How this complex, layered and ambiguous quarrelling is constituted at different levels and how this situation is lived and experienced by the local fishermen working along the present Slovene coast effectively forms the core of this book.
