dc.description.abstractThis research project examines socioeconomic and environmental impacts of the proposed Spaceport Camden through an investigation of marine spatial competition between the spaceport and local shrimpers on the coast of Georgia, USA. The current development proposition threatens to undermine the local shrimpers by excluding boat traffic during temporary waterway closures, and altering critical marsh habitat linked to healthy Georgia fisheries. Standard environmental impact statement procedures utilize a top-down approach calling for assessment from outside “experts” and provide a limited outlet for stakeholder input. This project cogenerates quantitative and qualitative data with Coastal Georgia shrimpers through mapping and interviews to examine the potential spatial relationships and conflicts between shrimpers and Spaceport. In doing so, this research challenges normative protocols of environmental assessment and coastal resource management, particularly with regard to the perceived placelessness of Georgia seascapes and the disenfranchisement of local fishing industries on the Georgia Coast.
