B.S. West et al. / International Journal of Drug Policy 25 (2014) 575–582 581 The cultivation of social networks that promote protective norms and practices may also act as a buffer against HIV risk behaviour (Duff, 2009); specifically, PWID's relationships with crewmembers and captains often increased risk, so working with captains, espe- cially, may be a key point of intervention. Further, PWID were socially marginalized and had limited occupational opportunities; however, while fishing provided PWID access to the formal wage economy, it also entailed risks to health. Reducing stigma and inte- grating PWID more fully into society and the economy could reduce the creation of occupational silos of HIV risk, like that which exists in the fishing industry, and could have important implications for the health of PWID.
