This chapter examines enforcement and compliance in the fisheries of sub-Saharan Africa, with particular emphasis on the dynamic interaction between ruler and ruled. The theoretical starting point in this chapter is that while fisheries management, as well as wildlife management in general, highlights two fundamental relationships in society—a horizontal relationship between citizens in a society and a vertical relationship between the government and its citizens—most theoretical and empirical effort has been focused on the horizontal one. The discussion begins with an overview of the current state of African fisheries and the challenges facing fishers and the industry at large. It then considers the significance of the government-citizen relationship, taking into account the incentives facing both parties in the interaction. It also develops a theoretical model and explores the dynamic interaction between ruler and ruled in the fisheries sector in Angola, Namibia, and South Africa.
