Abstract or Summary
  • The concept of an ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAF) is reaching a point of general acceptance by those involved in fisheries. There is also growing agreement that fisheries management must incorporate the complicated and often not-well-understood links between human activities and the environment. As a primary goal of an ecosystem approach is "to balance diverse societal objectives", social, economic, and institutional considerations are necessary components of any EAF-based policy making and, indeed, are the units of control available for EAF implementation. This paper presents the preliminary outcomes of the UN FAO Expert Consultation on the Economic, Social, and Institutional Considerations of Applying the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (June, 2006). This meeting was designed to provide an understanding of the roles played by these ‘human side’ perspectives within the EAF process; including 1) as driving forces for the EAF, 2) as a means for understanding the potential costs and benefits associated with EAF implementation, 3) as instruments in the application of EAF, and 4) as supporting or constraining roles in the EAF. This paper focuses on the process followed during the workshop as a great effort was made to incorporate principles of the ecosystem approach into the meeting itself.
