This issue of the Working Papers was developed by members of the WATERLATGOBACIT Networks Thematic Area 6, Hydrosocial Basins, Territories, and Spaces. The main focus of TA6, as the name suggests, is the co-construction of hydrosocial processes, manifested as basins, territories or spaces. Within this broad remit, TA6 members address the far-reaching transformations of the interrelations between humans and water systems, for instance in the resistance of artisanal fishing communities facing the disappearance of their water-based means of subsistence because owing to the pollution of water bodies, the uncontrolled commercial exploitation of fisheries or owing to their forced displacement from their territories by the, often violent, advance of industrialization and urbanization processes, among other issues. In this connection, the present issue is a dossier presenting research results on the situations affecting artisanal fishing communities in Latin America and Europe. It features four articles covering cases from Colombia, Mexico and Spain. This is the second dossier on the topic produced by TA6 members. The first issue, published as Volume 2, No 4 in 2015, was titled Inequality, injustice, and social change: the fate of artisanal fishing communities in Latin America, and included papers from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
