Record #152653:

Sustainability, knowledge and knowing what to do / Andreas Roepstorff.

Title: Sustainability, knowledge and knowing what to do / Andreas Roepstorff.
Author(s): Roepstorff, Andreas.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Aldershot: Ashgate Publishing Company
In: Dependency, autonomy, sustainability in the Arctic. (1999.),
Abstract: Concept of sustainability is discussed and related to author's visit to Ilulissat trading post, where Greenlander did dirty, heavy work of measuring halibut, while Danish biologist wrote down data. However, each preferred his work. Latter spoke of "stock", former "knew what to do", not just on shore but on dangerous sea ice. So there were two paradigms in use. Neither approach can fully answer whether halibut is sustainable, or whether Tragedy of Commons is in making, as catch goes up and fish sizes go down.
