Zum Inhalt
Within the last decades, the demand for marine living resources has increased dramatically. Too many boats are fishing for declining stocks and this has led to extensive exploitation of the living marine resources. The polulation sizes of cod in North Atlantic fisheries have been particularly effected. Fisheries management agencies have enacted several regulatory instruments to tackle the problem of overfishing and to establish sustainable fisheries management.

This book gives an overview of the ever more important issue of overexploitation of the natural resource cod and the development of the regulatory mechanism for fish quotas. It makes a contribution to the discussion of whether or not individual transferable quotas can make a difference to the establishment of sustainable fisheries in the North Atlantic. To answer this question, the study compares cod fisheries in Newfoundland, Iceland and the UK from the perspective of economic history in the period 1977–2007.
