Foundations of modern fisheries development

Foundations of modern fisheries development

  • Know the state of your fish stocks and ecosystems;

  • Know the value of your fishery resources;

  • Strengthen fisheries management, especially, monitoring, control and surveillance.


Elements of modern fisheries development

Elements of modern fisheries development

  • Engage only in mutually beneficial/access agreements;

  • Use subsidies rarely, and only those that do no harm to the resource base;

  • Where feasible, use catch rights or dedicated access privileges;

  • Engage only in sustainable aquaculture;

  • Develop smart small-scale inshore fisheries

  • Use marine protected areas as insurance.
