Fisheries Policy Reform

National Experiences

Much has been done over the years to improve fisheries management in OECD countries. Ongoing problems of over-fishing, overcapacity and the economic crisis intensify the need for reform. Although there is a general consensus on the importance of a successful fisheries management, the effort levels and effectiveness of policy reforms have differed among OECD countries. This study examines the factors that facilitate reform, as well as the difficulties countries face in the process of reform. It provides an overview of domestic reform experiences in Norway, Mexico, Iceland, New Zealand and Korea.

Hide / Show Abstract

This report presents five case studies of fisheries policy reform experiences in OECD countries: Iceland, Korea, Mexico, Norway and New Zealand. The draft report was prepared as part of the Committee for Fisheries project on "Fisheries Policy Reform". The aim of the case studies is to review the reform experiences in selected OECD countries in order to identify the key features of the reform processes and elicit general lessons on reform in the fisheries sector.
