ABSTRACT. Local organizations, such as lake associations, take an active role in fisheries management in some jurisdictions. This local involvement in may complement or complicate management efforts by state agencies. We briefly review the role that local organizations play in the management of fisheries landscapes, and draw from the fisheries, economic, and social-ecological literatures to suggest pathways and obstacles for successful collaborative management of these systems. Our goal is to set the stage for the symposium to follow.
