dc.description.abstractWomen in the fisheries in the United States have varied roles. They range from the most traditional - that of a fisherman's wife and support-partner in his business - to that of scientists and researchers in fisheries-related agencies. As wives, women are expected to be very flexible - strong, resourceful heads-of-household while the husband is at sea - and that of a partner or wife when he returns home. Women researchers and advocates are respected but it is more difficult for a woman representing private interests to gain respect; the government researcher has the benefit of a mantle of government credibility. This paper looks at various roles women in North America play in the fisheries sector. It is based on personal interviews and observations with various men andwomen in the fisheries-related industry. Although progress has been made over the past 20 years in terms of improving women's role and status in various occupations, much needs to be done for gender equality in thefisheries.
