The exploitation of a natural resource and quality enhancement policy : the sea bass fisher in Brittany

The sustainable management of the natural resource, such as the marine resource, has undergone much research combining biological, economic and social concerns. It is not in the purpose of this paper to study the effectiveness of the various policies which aim at implementing  sustainable exploitation schemes. But, the authors focus on analysing the impact that a quality enhancement programme using labels can have first on fishermen’s incomes, but also on resource level resulting from the changed fishing effort and producer’s fishing strategies, mainly through the development of a new labour-leisure trade-offs. A common Hicksian consumer model underlies the analysis. So, the purpose is to provide an economic interpretation fishermen’s exploitation practices  describing the impact of adopting a collective label in terms of financial benefits, working time and resource preservation.

Cognitive Work and Knowledge Management in Conception Activities

The article analyses management knowledge policies of the firms. In this purpose, the concept of “cognitive work” has been developed to make explicit knowledge process within conception activities. An analysis about “cognitive tools” belonging to these policies is developed too. On this base, management knowledge policies are considered with a double meaning: as an intervention policy on the way of thinking and understanding; as a management policy of “action areas”.
