Abstract
  • The sandfish catch in the coastal waters off Akita Prefecture has fluctuated largely over the last 40 years. It began to decrease in the middle 1970s, and in 1991 it heavily depleted by 70 tons, which corresponds to less than 1% of the catch in the 1960s. The Fisheries Cooperative Associations in Akita Prefecture closed the fishing independently from the government for three years from 1992 to 1995. After the closure, they introduced several management schemes such as a TAC system, introduced by the government of the Prefecture, reduction of fishing effort, cooperation in management with other prefectures which are suspected to have the same stock, construction of artificial spawning grounds, and releasing juveniles, artificially hatched and grown. Then, the catch recovered by 2,112 tons in 2002. The success of the rehabilitation of population was due to the success of establishing a conference system among fishermen, scientists, and the governor, clearly indicating the method to rehabilitate the stock and showing a reasonable sharing system of the management roles. This study presents the background and the factors that derived the successful management in Akita Prefecture.
