Example text

This creates a fundamental problem in securing the cooperation of all concerned states in initiatives to limit access to tuna resources. The UN Fish Stocks Agreement provides a framework of support for the LOSC regarding tuna. Article 7 of the Agreement states the responsibility of coastal states and other states to cooperate to ensure conservation and optimum utilization of the tuna resources, and Article 24 addresses the issue of developing states and the responsibility of developed states to developing states regarding conservation of tuna stocks and the development of fisheries on them.

Under such schemes, a market would develop for shares of the potential harvest, thereby allowing any individual, group, or nation to enter the fishery by buying a catch quota and/or a share of the total fishing capacity. Many of the have-not nations are developing coastal states, and some consideration should be given to mechanisms for assisting them in the purchase of rights into the fishery in question if their cooperation in instituting effective management is to be assured. Criteria for Allocating Catch and Fleet Capacity In 1969, in the tuna fishery of the EPO, the IATTC made the first allocations of catch in an international tuna fishery.

A buyback scheme could be used to reduce the fleet size to levels closer to the optimum. At the outset it is likely that government or international monetary funding would be needed to make the buybacks, due to the large capital expenditures that would have to be made, but once the fleet reached the optimum level the program could be maintained by industry. For example, the current fleet limit for the EPO is for 243 vessels with a total carrying capacity of approximately 185,000 mt. The target carrying capacity for the area is about 135,000 mt.
