Abstract or Summary
  • At the 2001 WTO Ministerial Conference in Doha, World Trade Ministers called for improved disciplines on fisheries subsidies, given the perceived impact of these subsidies in contributing to overfishing, overcapacity and other trade distortions. Subsequent deliberations have sought to determine which fisheries subsidies should be disciplined under the WTO framework. A review of fishery subsidisation literature revealed that the extent and impacts of subsidies of fishery infrastructure has been insufficiently investigated by the fishery economic community. In 2005 a New Zealand submission to the WTO proposed a categorisation of subsidies for fisheries infrastructure to promote discussion of these issues in the WTO arena. This paper presents a category framework for investigating fisheries infrastructure subsidies and briefly presents a range of views on how nations look at fishery infrastructure subsidies and differences over the belief that infrastructure subsidies can detrimentally impact upon fish stocks. The discussion presents several illustrations of how infrastructural subsidies have not been sufficiently factored into empirical fishery economic studies of the catching and processing sectors. Infrastructural subsidies can have negative implications for the sustainable management of the world's fish stocks.
