To be able to analyze the legal regimes governing the estuaries, you must be able to take the position of governmental actors and NGO's into account. For this purpose a first attempt has been made in this paper to adapt the Schlager & Ostrom framework to accomodate for these problems. Therefore two new types of ownership are introduced, namely the trustee and the steward
