Abstract
Overfishing is a severe threat to all of the world’s fisheries. Uncontrolled effort levels and insufficient research about the state of the fish stocks has lead to a rapid decline in many fish stock populations. The most recent research reported that 32% of global marine resources are either overexploited or depleted and that 53% are fully exploited. Many countries put their hope to designing fisheries management systems (FMS) that enable the domestic fishing fleets to exploit their marine resources in a sustainable way and protect the stock populations. This paper investigates the effects implemented management systems have had on fishery production in three African countries. It also closer examines the FMS in Namibia and its effects on... (More)
