Abstract or Summary
  • The current Senate Bill to reauthorize the Magnuson/Stevens Act, the key US fishery management law, will allow some significant changes in the way that Individual Transferable Quota programs can be developed. First, the bill will expand the range of individuals who will be permitted to obtain harvesting privileges. In addition to vessel owners, captains, crew members, and implicitly owners of processing plants and fishery related business may also, at the discretion of a Fishery Management Council, be permitted to own them. In addition, councils may allow for the creation of entities known as fishing communities (FCs) and Regional Fishery Associations (RFAs). The former would be more geographically based and would be formed to assist in regional economic development. The latter could be more spread out and would be a voluntary association with established by-laws and operating procedures consisting of participants in the fishery, including commercial or recreational fishing, processing, and fishery-dependent support businesses. The only purpose for RFAs that is stipulated in the law is to mitigate any untoward distributional or other effects that would be caused by allocating privileges only to individuals. The paper will analyze the situations in which these entities likely will be used, how they will be set up, and the overall effect they will likely have on rights based fishery management in the USA.
