Example text

1 Chapter 4, therefore, examines fishing as an economic activity. It starts by considering how failures in the market have contributed to failures in fisheries management and examines fishing as a production process and the influences of opportunity costs. It also considers, from an economic perspective, the very difficult but widespread problems associated with open-access to fisheries. The chapter goes on to use a bio-economic approach to consider the economics of fisheries and how this knowledge and understanding can contribute to effective management.

The need to use the best available information as a basis for management decisions and actions is a fundamental requirement of the precautionary approach and of good management in general. The chapter explores the role of information in fisheries management, how it should feed into the management process and the different types of knowledge that are typically available in fisheries. Even in the best studied and monitored fisheries, uncertainty is a major problem and taking this into account in decision-making is essential for success.

Chapter 10 addresses use rights in fisheries, a tool that is now recognised to be critical for effective fisheries management, or a potentially critical constraint if the manager does not get it right. This chapter also starts with asking the question of why use rights are relevant to the fisheries manager. In practice, use rights already exist in many fisheries, although these are not always formally recognised by the authorities, and the chapter stresses the need to consider any existing schemes before beginning to implement a new one or to make changes.
