Over the past decade, interpretations of Supreme Court (SC) rulings removed some critical waters from Fed. protection, and caused confusion about which waters and wetlands are protected under the CWA.

The Clean Water Act prohibits the discharge of dredged or fill material into fed reg'd waters without first obtaining a Army Corps of Eng. permit. Before 2001, the Corps asserted jurisdiction over most waters, if migratory birds could use them. However, in Jan. 2001, the Supreme Court concluded that the Corps exceeded its authority in asserting jurisdiction over such waters based solely on their use by birds. This report examines the extent to which the Corps: processes data it uses for making jurisdictional determinations; documents decisions that it does not have jurisdiction; is using its r

This ethnographic study considers the engagement of Dutch fishermen with the limited resources of the marine world, as well as the capricious markets and political interventions that govern the fishing industry from the early eighteenth-century to the present day. More specifically, it focuses on the owner-operators, deckhands, fishermen’s wives, and others involved in the fisheries of Texel, an island at the northwestern end of the Netherlands. Elucidating how the fishermen have navigated treacherous waters, in both a real and metaphorical sense, for many decades, Braving Troubled Waters of
