Decreasing fish stocks and other threats to marine environments is nowadays a major concern for fishing industries. The question is what it takes to maintain a sustainable fishery for future generations. The purpose of this case study of Norwegian fish management was to identify and analyze elements that contribute to the management of a sustainable fishing industry.
Material for the study was collected from research reports and literature about various management forms of governing.
The analysis indicated that environmental governance is a decisive element for a sustainable fishing industry. This type of governance is based on the fact that fish industries often share fishing grounds. Other significant elements for the distributed responsibility that characterize environmental governance are: valid and shared information about fish stocks, domestic institutions in control of adopted regulations and multiple international agreements. These are the fundamental elements for a sustainable fishing industry. (Less)
