The social context and politics of resource use


The findings show that the phenomenon of fisheries depletion is located within the framework of resource control and market incorporation. The export-orientation of the Philippine economy propelled the transformation of resources with a use value into commodities with an exchange value. The expansion of trade pushed fishers toward new spatial margins, leading to the processes of incorporation as well as marginalization, as resources are depleted through excessive effort and destructive fishing practices.
