This report is intended to present a range of sociological perspectives: problems, questions pertaining to the formation and operation of cooperatives for and by commercial fishermen. It is a preliminary report which does not duplicate those discussions in publications specifically concerned with cooperatives (included in the selected bibliography), but rather offers themes and generalizations which I hope will prove useful, subject to criticism and discussion with staff members of VIMS. The first part of the report concerns planning the formation of a cooperative, with emphasis upon problems which have been encountered elsewhere.
