Fisheries management measures: incentives and governance issues

The list of past and existing management measures applied to different fisheries developed in European Western waters is analysed from a typology of co-management between government and stakeholders. Faced with increasing constraints on accessing fish stocks, management measures have evolved toward individualisation of fishing rights, limited access and other specific management measures. Restrictions on fish stocks access have changed fishermen behaviour in several major ways. A comparative methodology, based on qualitative data collected through interviews and focus groups, is developed for fisheries commercially exploited by fishing fleets from different European countries: France, Ireland, Spain and the United Kingdom. Past and existing individual authorisations experienced in the four countries are reviewed and compared.
