Fisheries Planning and Development

The topic focuses on fisheries and aquaculture management and how different stakeholders operate within different institutions.

Based on the tragedy of the commons we discuss the experiences of marine management, with a particular focus on solutions like Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Individual Transferable Quotas (ITQs) and co-management. The course is also covering the use of different fishing and aquaculture technologies and how these may affect various goals, such as food production, export, employment and income. Special attention is given to how western experiences can be used in a different setting, i.e. adapted to the challenges meeting the fishing sectors in the developing world.
