Dealing with capacity issues in fisheries

This chapter addresses the issue of overcapacity of fishing fleets. Too many boats chasing too few fish is an evocative quote but the economics of capacity are more complex. This chapter describes the difference between technical and economic overcapacity, showing how one is a normal and expected feature of fishing fleets while the other is a consequence of poor policy design. The chapter prescribes some solutions to capacity issues in the context of a well-functioning management system.
