    Reducing Fishing Capacity - Best Practices for Decommissioning Schemes

    Too many fishing vessels chasing too few fish is a persistent problem in many countries.

By drawing on case studies of decommissioning schemes from OECD and non-OECD countries, it provides policy makers and fisheries managers with detailed analysis of the economic issues surrounding decommissioning schemes.
