This title contributes original material, taken from interview transcripts, on the under-researched German fishing industry.This work concludes that elements of the standard liberal intergovernmentalism and historical institutionalism hypotheses can indeed explain the stances of the domestic fisheries' stakeholders. At the same time there is some evidence of institutional and actor blurring, and institutional socialization in Germany and the United Kingdom.Nevertheless, this study argues that fishing is 'high politics' in the UK, but 'low politics' in Germany. This might be explained by the way in which UK debates on fishing have been linked to the future of the European Union, whereas in Germany these same debates on fishing have been tied to the future of the planet.
