There has been a longstanding conflict in the Icelandic fisheries management system over the distribution rent and the perceived negative influence on various regions. Nevertheless, this conflict has has in many ways secured sustainability in the management of living marine resources. The government is reviewing the fisheries management system to address these factors. A working group was created in 2009 and it submitted its conclusions in 2010. The first proposals are to be submitted in 2011. A coastal fisheries option was initiated in 2008 to address amongst other things, the negative influences on regional settlements. This option is to be implemented for May-June with a common pool quota.
