Dr. Schouten’s research partnership with Fishing for Success aims to understand the workings of a social enterprise finding ways to succeed without access to many conventional resources. Fishing for Success connects people with Newfoundland and Labrador’s traditional fishing knowledge and culture of self-reliance through activities like sustainable hand-line cod fishing and foraging for native foods. Revenue is then invested in free programs for non-profit social services such as Choices for Youth, Thrive NL and the Association for New Canadians. The research team brings expertise in marketing, management and entrepreneurship to examine the challenges of social enterprise.
