Abstract or Summary
  • Catch share systems are being encouraged and considered in a variety of United States (U.S.) fisheries. Scientists, policy makers, and stakeholders (including fishermen and non-governmental environmental organizations) have different views about potential social and economic impacts and outcomes of these output- oriented systems. Thus identifying and evaluating impacts over time is essential to assess and improve such systems and determine whether intended outcomes are realized. During 2009-2010 Social Sciences Branch (SSB) staff at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts engaged in a multiphase process to identify and define meaningful measures of social and economic performance of catch share systems, as well as indicators and information sources to guide the ongoing evaluation of these programs. The principal performance measures identified in this process are financial viability, distributional outcomes, stewardship, governance, and well-being. Here we review the current state of catch shares in the Northeast U.S., describe the methodology used in identifying performance measures and associated indicators, and present the social and economic performance measure monitoring plan that will guide future investment in social science research at the NEFSC.
