Resumen: "Small-scale fisheries are complex, making them difficult to assess and manage. In this study, the authors’ knowledge and findings from interviews with local users were drawn upon to identify 25 variables with the potential to influence the sustainability of small-scale fisheries in Campeche, Mexico. It is concluded that achieving sustainability in these fisheries will vary on a case-by-case basis, demanding pursuit of specific sets of variables, depending on the circumstances. Interviewees put forward a series of recommendations to strengthen Mexican regulations linked to fisheries, to empower fishers, and to facilitate effective fishery co-management."
