Legend: Fishing is a unique type of economic activity and a special socioeconomic way of life. It functions within a complex multidimensional coordinate system where natural, economic, and social factors all come together.
The fishing industry cannot be evaluated solely based on economic results or social indicators. This is why each country chooses its own method for allocating aquatic biological resources. The only common feature of each nation’s choice is the long-term stability of the selection it makes.
Whether or not the proper choice is made should be evaluated by taking into account the population of aquatic biological resources, the socioeconomic health of coastal regions, the financial health of the fishing industry, and the fishing industry’s contribution to the development of related sectors of the economy.
– Economic efficiency and social stability: how can we find a balance between them?
– Fishing regulation tools: what is a biologically permissible and economically viable fish catch?
– To what extent is absolute competition possible in the natural resource sectors of the economy?
– How fishing legislation was shaped: national examples;
– The balance of national and private interests in the fishing industry.
