The Economics of Rebuilding Fisheries

Workshop Proceedings

Rebuilding fisheries is a key challenge for many countries as some stocks are in a poor state while others are depleted.  In May 2009, economists, biologists, fisheries managers and policy makers participated in an OECD Workshop on the Economics of Rebuilding Fisheries. The workshop was designed to identify and analyse economic uncertainties, policy issues, biological conditions and information constraints, and to review the role of key players in program delivery. This conference proceedings presents an overview of the major economic and institutional issues associated with rebuilding fisheries and provides examples of national and international initiatives.

Hide / Show Abstract

Rebuilding overfished fish stocks is a challenging task with which governments have had mixed success. The time between "overfished" to "rebuilt" is a transition period managed by a rebuilding plan whose effectiveness is strongly influenced by distributional issues. Stock rebuilding is a targeted biological objective, but the process of rebuilding is an economic one that embodies allocation and distribution. Just as distributional issues influence the policy choices that lead to overfishing, they also shape the strategies employed to rebuild overfished stocks. Distributional issues are embedded in the management context, history, structures and processes of a fishery and through these, influence the identification and implementation of a rebuilding strategy.
