The future

The future

Earth Summit in June, 2012.

At this moment proposals are made:

10% of ocean as marine reserve, banning subsidies, phazing out trawling, improving enforcement on high seas and ports (illigal fishing) and improved coordination on flags of convenience ships.

The reform of the eu cfp 2013

The reform of the EU CFP 2013

Key points:

  • Discard ban

  • Maximum Sustainable Yield 2015

  • Regionalization

  • Social Dimension

  • Transferable Fishing Concessions

Why european seas as managed commons fails

Why European seas as managed commons fails

  • Lack of enfocement and too many fishermen

  • These are the 2 definitions of management failures according to Hardins tragedy of the commons.

  • P.149

Maximum sustainable yield

Maximum Sustainable yield

Based on taking the amount of stock that maximizes profits on the assumption that reduced stocks enhance biological capacity and thus

increase fish population


But....these assumptions are highly vulnareble to miscalculations, environmental disasters, fish diseases etc.



  • Creates overcapacity
