After reflecting on the current status of international law and insights from studies on legal pluralism on the recognition of customary law, this chapter explores shared challenges and different approaches to ensuring the recognition of small-scale fishers' customary rights in Ghana and South Africa. The chapter concludes by drawing on international human rights law and international environmental law to identify procedural approaches to strengthen the protection for fishers' customary rights as a matter of implementation at the national level.
