Abstract or Summary
  • Fishery co-management, where local fishermen form a group to manage the fishery in a collective manner, have recently garnered a considerable amount of interest among fishermen and regulators, both in developed and developing countries. Conceptually it is seen as an alternative to centralized command-and-control regulations, as well as individually privatized system such as ITQs. Despite the increasing attention by various stakeholders, fishery co-management has not been adequately studied in economics. Previous studies have relied on case studies which precludes systematic comparison across heterogeneous institutions. To address this problem, the paper analyzes fishery co-management organizations (FMOs) in Japan. Japan is an ideal setting to study these questions because there are 1,600+ FMOs with different management types. We focus on two types of management measures: effort coordination and pooling arrangements. We analyze the characteristics of these FMOs and their management performances and found that FMOs with both effort coordination and pooling arrangement outperformed FMOs with either only effort coordination or pooling arrangement, or none. However, with regard to the performance on resource management the results were indifferent.
