Green Growth in Fisheries and Aquaculture

image of Green Growth in Fisheries and Aquaculture

This report summarises the current situation in fisheries and aquaculture, observing that in many parts of the world these sectors are at risk and do not reach their full potential. However, the prospects for sustained growth are good if reforms along the lines suggested by the OECD Green Growth Strategy are undertaken. The report emphasises the need for a strong, science-based approach to stock management for resource sustainability, combined with a transparent and reactive policy development cycle to ensure that fisheries deliver maximum possible benefits. The report shows that improved regulation to deal with environmental externalities and space competition is key to unlocking future growth potential of aquaculture.

Foreword and acknowledgements

Fisheries and aquaculture depend directly on the natural environment for their productive capacity. The challenges for fisheries and aquaculture policy makers are to deliver on economic and social goals while respecting the natural biological limits of the resource. How to succeed in this has been a central subject of work by the OECD’s Committee for Fisheries.
