FISHERIES CO-MANAGEMENT: DELEGATING GOVERNMENT RESPONSIBILITY TO FISHERMEN'S ORGANIZATIONS

The division of responsibility between the state and the fishing industry in fisheries management is discussed, particularly the role of fishermen's organizations and the degree to which such organizations can handle regulatory functions. The problems involved in a cooperative management approach are examined, as is the comparative advantageousness of such an approach. The circumstances that might favor the success of co-management are noted. The author's conclusions concerning the efficacy of a cooperative management regime draw upon analagous international experiences.
