Subsidies in World Fisheries. A Reexamination

Author

  • Milazzo, M.

Abstract

This study examines the role of subsidies in explaining the obvious and injurious mismatch between fishing effort and biological production capacity. It uses the definitions and methodology of the WTO on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures of 1994 in defining the nature and size of subsidies to the sector and their impact, based on case studies for Japan, the European Union, Norway, the US, Russia and China.
