Show Summary Details


Marine fisheries are an arena where the economic and political tensions around resource access and trade have become heightened. Fisheries resources have declined globally and climate change impacts will change the distribution, productivity, and access. The unfolding recognition of unequal distribution of resources and costs to access fish, management effectiveness, and the impacts of climate change are expected to lead to continuous changes in aid and the interactions between national and international governance of marine fisheries. The alignment of national and international interests and policies will influence the evolving framework for these institutional changes. How local laws are implemented, their flexibility, the effectiveness of monitoring resources, and mechanisms for funding will increasingly solve or undermine these emerging governance problems.
