Negative impacts on fisheries resources and socio economic structure
Negative Impacts on Fisheries Resources and Socio-economic Structure

  • Some verifiable impacts are:

  • Degradation of fisheries biomass and near collapse for some species

  • Variations in fishing effort

  • Ecological degradation

  • Increased costs for fisheries regulation and control; (cont’d)


Negative impacts on resources and socio economic structure of fisheries sector
Negative Impacts on Resources and Socio-economic Structure of Fisheries Sector

  • Some verifiable impacts are:

Capture Quotas to Be Established By:


Other criteria in the allocation of quotas

Employment of argentine nationals, Argentina

Investments in the country,

Previous fishing records, amounts captured as well as sanctions, (catch history)

Other Criteria in the Allocation of Quotas


Transferability factors
Transferability Factors Argentina

  • Capture quotas would be totally or partially transferable through transference fees payments

  • Transference of quotas will not be allowed between different types of ships


Quota design

Definition of rights, Argentina

Allocation of these rights,

Setting of a market for secondary trading of quotas,

Natural resource rent extraction,

Management cost recovery, as well as

Abatement of negative social impacts possible

Quota Design


Issues and challenges in quota design
Issues and Challenges in Quota Design Argentina

  • Concentration of market

  • Resistance by industry and other actors

  • Social compensation measures

  • Monitoring capacity


Quota system s negative impacts
Quota System’s Negative Impacts Argentina

  • Encouraging dumping by-catch or fish of poor quality or size/high grading;

  • Data fouling;

  • Quota busting and poaching


Challenges
Challenges Argentina

  • If establishing quotas derives from different goals (social and economic development as well as environmental sustainable use)

    • Then challenge implies not only change in exploitation mode but also

    • In establishing ancillary policies
