Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the contribution of the Dalhousie University Ocean Studies Programme (DOSP) to fisheries and ocean management in the Caribbean. DOSP was unique in its focus on ocean management and on fostering a multidisciplinary approach. With funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), DOSP initiated studies for some of the States in the Eastern Caribbean, namely all members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), dealing with delimitation and ocean management issues. These constituted seminal work for the entire Commonwealth Caribbean Region. The chapter examines the DOSP legacy in the Caribbean and covers the following aspects: 1) the DOSP seminal studies in the Eastern Caribbean; 2) DOSPs influence on CIDAs involvement with regional initiatives in the Caribbean; and 3) the implications of DOSP initiatives for the current management regime of the Caribbean Sea.

Keywords: Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA); Caribbean Sea; Dalhousie University Ocean Studies Programme (DOSP); fisheries; ocean management
