This paper discusses certain aspects of a fishermen's cooperative of the New York Bight region of the Middle Atlantic coast. Emphasized are the ways in which the cooperative functions as a vehicle of indigenous fisheries management, as part of its larger function of helping its members cope with environmental uncertainty.
