Rebuilding a fishery from a collapsed state could see up to five-fold increases in its value, depending on its ecological, economic and regulatory characteristics. Appropriately-designed rights-based systems can better align individual fisher incentives to promote sustainable fisheries.
How should we manage fisheries, forestry and other 'common pool' resources, where one person's use of them means less is available for others? Nobel Prize-winning economist Elinor Ostrom explains why we must change the way we think about managing common pool resources.
Fisheries reform is driven by economic forces, not environmental crisis. Policy makers must involve all stakeholders in supporting and sustaining reforms, as seen in these case studies of Iceland, Korea, Mexico, Norway and New Zealand.
Le changement climatique aura des impacts sur les pêcheries, les stocks de poissons et les communautés côtières, mais toutefois la forme et l'étendue de ces impacts sont incertaines. (En anglais)
Many fish stocks need rebuilding, but economic and social factors are also important for sustainable fisheries. This paper discusses the important distinction between rebuilding stocks and rebuilding fisheries, and the use of bioeconomic modelling for developing rebuilding strategies.
What should policy makers do to address climate change? This working paper looks at approaches to managing fisheries, so that the sector can adapt to changing conditions.
La mondialisation, la gestion des ressources naturelles et l’évolution des styles de vie sont autant de facteurs qui influent sur les pêcheries, selon ce livre dans la série Les essentiels de l'OCDE.
Aquaculture now provides more than 50% of the global supply of fisheries products for direct human consumption. The economic, environmental and social implications of this were discussed by policy makers and experts at this 2010 conference.
Analysis and statistics for issues affecting fisheries in OECD countries in 2005, 2006 and some recent events of 2007, including changes in national and international policies, trade, climate change, and fisheries and aquaculture production.
Management strategy evaluation (MSE) is designed to identify fishery rebuilding and harvest strategies that are robust to uncertainty and natural variation, and that balance biological and socioeconomic objectives.
