Area-based Management and Regional Fisheries Management Organisations in the Asia Pacific Region

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The concept of area-based management in recent times has become increasingly associated with fisheries management. That this should be so is not a surprise. The linking of international regulation to the regulation of specific areas

    is not at all new – in fact if anything the reverse is true.1 Historically, linking the

    regulation of marine living resource to specific areas goes back to the earliest

    efforts at such regulation. Regional fisheries management organizations (rfmos) have typically, but not always, been geographically limited in area, and

    therefore it is logical that as area-based management has been considered in

    other contexts in dealing with ocean space that it should also be considered in

    the context of fisheries.
