AbstractThis thesis employs a multi-level governability approach to explore ways of alleviating uncertainty in fisheries governance outcomes, with particular attention to conservation measures. A system perspective that provides a holistic and comprehensive view of a fisheries system is accompanied by an analysis situated at the people-level which accounts for individual viewpoints. At the system-level, the governability assessment was undertaken to investigate system complexity that confounds governance outcomes. At the individual-level, the study uncovered conservation awareness and inclination of fishery stakeholders to discuss how, their conservation principle relates to illegal fishing practices. The results highlight several areas of governance challenges in the Southeast Arm fishery of Lake Malawi that may limit the success of governance measures, including those aimed at mitigating illegal fishing. Hence, acknowledging and navigating around the limitations would be a step towards achieving a more reliable governance function. Further, potential for achieving fisheries conservation among stakeholders was shown, suggesting individual principle's relevance in achieving conservation governance outcomes.
