Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?

Comments Off on Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?

The story of overfishing is old by now. Commercial fishing of North Atlantic Cod , once a bedrock of New England’s economy, collapsed along with the fishery in the mid-1990s. The same story played out on the West Coast in 2008, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared a “ fishery failure ” for Chinook salmon. Recently, government regulators, non-profits, and fishermen themselves have turned to “ catch share ” programs to implement conservation measures. Guided by regulations from the Magnuson-Stevens Act , the thought is that if enough fish are left in the water to reproduce, they can keep the species alive, and (hopefully) replenish numbers closer to the fisheries’ historic strength. That sets the stage for conflict with fishermen, who suddenly have a cap on their income. Read the rest of Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?
