Fishermen's wives, mothers, and daughters have historically played integral roles in fishing families for generations. Responsibilities have typically included managing homes, children, and business operations. As fisheries management increases in complexity, the roles of women in fisheries is changing. While still maintaining their traditional roles, they are also expanding into management, research, and advocacy. In some circumstances, women are interacting regularly with other fishermen, processors, fisheries managers at both the state and federal levels, as well as researchers.
