New Governance Models for Managing Coastal Fisheries

Are They Relevant for Asia-Pacific Communities?

Anastasia Telesetsky

After the disastrous collapse of the groundfish fisheries in California, fishermen from a number of California coastal communities were prepared to try something different to secure their livelihoods. With the support of a multinational non-governmental organization (ngo), these fishermen committed to sharing previously proprietary information, implementing conservation practices, and pooling quota. This article queries what lessons there might be for Asia-Pacific coastal community fisheries from the “California coastal model.” The article proposes three lessons: (1) ngo investments can change the long-term viability of a fishery (2) local fishery management by a group that identifies itself as a community may be effective for fisheries recovery; and (3) community or group quotas and rights can support sustainability objectives.
