Sample text

In early conventional fisheries management, it was suggested that fisheries management should aim to maintain the stock at this point. However, applications of the original ‘surplus yield’ models were limited in their ability to maintain stocks at MSY because they only used catch and effort data and ignored important biological and ecological attributes of individual target species. These attributes ranged from ecosystem and interspecific interactions to the importance of environmental stochasticity.

Ecosystem-level analyses possible if relevant information and capacity acquired. • Balance present use, conservation and sustainable use of resources. • Reduce excess fishing effort. • Integrate fishery with coastal management planning. • Consider transboundary and other issues relevant to larger spatial scale management. • Ensure that the living resources in the exclusive economic zone are not endangered by over-exploitation. • Account for uncertainties relating to the size and productivity of the stocks and environmental conditions.

The chapter then explores the emerging best practices, drawing on the conclusions and perspectives presented in the preceding chapters. It finishes with an attempt to look further ahead and considers how fisheries management may evolve in the future. It does so by considering three possible governance scenarios: the (hopefully) extremes of a totally market-driven world and a world dominated by governance chaos. These are contrasted with the third, best-case, scenario of a transformed world. On that forward-looking note, we wish you enjoyable reading and hope that you find ideas and information in this book that will assist you in whatever task or tasks you face in the challenging world of fisheries and their management.
