This Review contains a General Survey of Policy Developments based on material submitted by OECD member countries, information gathered on observer and enhanced engagement countries, and an overview of recent activities of the Committee of Fisheries. It also includes a special chapter which is the Chairs' Report from the Round Table on Eco-labelling and Certification in the Fisheries Sector. Finally, it contains Country Notes on the state of fisheries in OECD and observer countries.



General Introduction

The 2009 OECD Ministerial Council Meeting adopted a Green Growth Declaration, giving OECD a mandate to develop a Green Growth strategy to bring together economic, environmental, social, technological and development aspects into a comprehensive framework. It has been long recognised that without sustainable management of natural resources the future of fisheries is bleak. Within the fisheries sector, the Green Growth paradigm offers potentially important new insights and a renewed policy framework to ensure that additional issues are addressed at a much wider level, notably by including the social and development aspects.
