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.

Rebuilding fisheries: An overview of issues and policy approaches in the OECD

Pressure to take strong action to rebuild depleted fish stocks has been increasing over the past couple of decades at the international, regional and national policy levels. At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, governments around the world committed to an ambitious goal of rebuilding fish stocks. The Johannesburg Plan of Implementation specifically requires countries to “maintain or restore stocks to levels that can produce the maximum sustainable yield with the aim of achieving these goals for depleted stocks on an urgent basis and where possible not later than 2015.”
