Abstract
  • This paper, which was given as a keynote address for Africa fisheries policy day, addresses the key issue of how the exploitation of Africa’s fish resources can make a greater sustainable contribution to African economic growth. It is estimated that such resources have the potential to deliver annual wealth in the order of US$ 3.8 billion. It is argued that economics has developed a robust qualitative explanation of the problem in terms of fish resource wealth and open access but that this explanation has insufficient influence in policy. The paper suggests how this situation may be improved.
