Market mechanisms to manage fisheries

This chapter highlights the usefulness of market approaches in reaching policy objectives. Policies that ignore or oppose market forces tend to deliver unexpected side effects stemming from the decisions and actions of those they affect. On the other hand, policies that take advantage of the ability of markets to allocate resources can increase the efficiency, sustainability and profitability of a fishery.
