The Development and Management of Marine Fisheries in Latin America and the Caribbean
AbstractThere is now a global and regional awareness that marine fisheries have been significantly mismanaged in all parts of the world, including the South Atlantic and South Pacific oceans. This paper attempts to provide the background information necessary for the development of a new coastal and marine resources managment strategy for the IDB and offers some suggestions for its formulation and implementation. The paper emphasizes the critical need for improved management, in order to obtain the potentially large economic rewards of the fisheries, and to provide a basis for dealing with conflicts over competing uses of the marine resources.
