Abstract or Summary
  • While the discussion of the use of rights based management for recreational fisheries began over 10 years ago, there are still very few examples of recreational fisheries managed under a rights based approach. Recreational users in the US have been extremely resistant to strong forms of rights based management for many reasons; equity, fairness, high transactions costs and past culture and traditions to name a few. While a number of highly migratory fisheries are managed using rights based approaches, challenges arise through the use of permanent right allocation; lack of infrastructure (both political and management infrastructure), rights of sovereign nations, high seas governance, etc. With all these issues, it seems as if there are more obstacles than opportunities. This talk will focus on these challenges and some ways to address these challenges in a movement towards more incentive compatible management that increases wealth and resiliency and decreases vulnerability. The author’s current experiences with designing wealth based approaches to conserve Caribbean billfish stocks will be discussed.  Perhaps surprisingly, both small scale fishers in the Caribbean and recreational fishing groups have both been using similar rhetoric to oppose strong forms of rights based techniques. The most important point in this entire debate is for both the naysayers and the proponents to realize that rights based strategies exist on a continuum from weak, attenuated community rights to strong, individual rights and there is much room in the middle where management can be improved.
