Excerpt
Introduction: Excessive levels of harvesting capacity are a serious problem facing fishery managers in the new millennium. Mace (1996) identified ?[over]capacity as the single most important factor threatening the long-term viability of exploited fish stocks and the fisheries that depend on them,? requiring a significant reduction in existing global fishing capacity for levels to become commensurate with sustainable resource productivity. As well as being biologically unsustainable, the level of overcapacity observed in the mid-1990s was also economically unsustainable, relying on subsidies to persist. Garcia and Newton (1997) estimated that world fishing capacity would need to be reduced by 25 percent for revenues to cover operating costs and by 53 percent for revenues to cover total costs.
