In order to achieve responsible fisheries, Korea established a 10-year stock recovery plan in 2005. The plan was applied to four species in 2006 and expanded to seven species in 2007. Korea has started to mange squid resources under the TAC system and 10 species are currently managed by that system. In addition, a special law was legislated in 2004 to root out illegal fishing by small bottom trawl boats and 2 468 boats were scraped in 2005 and 2006 according to the Act.
