Abstract or Summary
  • In British Columbia “co-management agreements” are improving the sustainable management of many commercial fisheries. While some fisheries have fairly extensive co-management agreements which outline cost recovery, joint and separate roles and responsibilities for enforcement, science, and management, most do not. There are a number of important factors which have limited the development of co-management in B.C. These include lack of security of access to fisheries resources for participants; a lack of clear and easily accessible policy supporting co-management; free riders and incentives for industry participants not to cooperate; a perceived lack of agreement on objectives between industry and government; and a lack of public confidence that fisheries management can be improved through co-management. Progress in moving towards industry taking greater responsibility for sustainable management of commercial fisheries will depend on both industry and government dealing proactively with these issues.
