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.

Conclusions

There are several areas I would like to comment on to add some considerations or provide emphasis. These relate to the biology and management of stocks, the importance of the transition to stock rebuilding and my feelings with respect to the outputs of the workshop and what we have learned here in Newport.
