Sammanfattning

This chapter presents the results of case studies on human wildlife conflicts conducted in Sweden and Finland. In both cases the model conflict is between the conservation of the grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) and small-scale coastal fishing. The cases are presented together because of the many similarities and the close interaction of the stakeholders in the seal management. Some of the similarities are, in fact, commonalities, the most important of them being the shared grey seal population and the existence of joint protection programmes (from HELCOM and EU) for the grey seal.

The characteristics of the conflict between grey seal protection and fishery can be shown by way of systematic comparison between the two countries and model regions as done here. Thus one can also better see what can be learned from the comparison of the cases and use the knowledge gained for suggestions for the further management of the conflict. In future, additional conflict mitigation measurements to those currently practiced will be required. The main messages from both case studies in the Baltic Sea are formulated with regard to the significance of coastal fishery (as resource manager, not only resource user), with regard to single conflict mitigation measures, such as seal hunting and technical solutions to the conflict, and with regard to a combination of measures and overall approaches to conflict management, all of which converge to the conclusion that it is much more that can be learned from the management of the seal conflict than the resolution of that specific conflict: one by one the lessons learned turn out to be steps of a more encompassing strategy of sustainable resource management in the coastal zone.
