CRUZ-COLIN, María Esther; CISNEROS-MATA, Miguel Ángel  and  MONTANO-MOCTEZUMA, Gabriela. Stakeholder analysis of jellyfish fishery in Guaymas, Sonora. Región y sociedad [online]. 2019, vol.31, e1104.  Epub May 08, 2019. ISSN 2448-4849.

The aim of this research was to know the role of stakeholders involved in the cannonball jellyfish fishery in Guaymas, Sonora. Using the snowball method, semi-structured interviews were conducted, then hierarchized through the power/interest network of four quadrants, and related to a connection matrix. The result showed that the National Fishery Institute, buyers, processors, marketers and fishing cooperatives are the key players, with greater interest and influence in the management of the fishery. This analysis is useful to establish and enhance the management of jellyfish catch. It follows that there is a conflictive relationship and little cooperation among the said stakeholders, which prevents management strategies to exploit jellyfish fishing in conditions of sustainability from being respected.

Keywords : stakeholder analysis; jellyfish fishery; socio-ecological resilience; interviews; Guaymas.
