About this book

This book focuses on rights-based management and the creation of economic incentives to manage transnational tuna fisheries. Transnational tuna fisheries are among the most important fisheries in the world, and tuna commissions are increasingly shifting toward this approach. Comprehensively covering the subject, the authors summarize global experience and offer practical applications for applying rights-based management and the creation of economic incentives, addressing potential problems as well as the total level of capacity.
