    Many analyses of fishery recovery have demonstrated the potential biological and economic benefits of management reform, but few have compared these to the associated costs of management upgrades, which can be substantial. This study aims to determine ...

    The advent of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) in recent years has expanded the scope of fisheries management, where policies are aimed not only at maximizing production (or biological yield) but also maintaining an optimal balance between ...

    Lake Victoria is of immense ecological and socio-economic significance for the riparian communities. However, the lake is faced with human induced pressures such as overfishing, introduction of alien species, increased eutrophication and climate change ...

    The management of marine resources pose a difficult commons problem as monitoring behavior is difficult and benefit flows from the resources are uncertain. Implementing individual transferable quota (ITQ) is a management regime in which quasi-property ...

    Flestir fiskistofnar heims eru nýttir að fullu eða ofveiddir. Ofnýting hefur í för með sér slæmar vistfræðilegar, hagrænar og félagslegar afleiðingar. Minna er hægt að veiða úr ofveiddum stofnum og hætta getur verið á hruni þeirra. Og af því að þeir ...
  • Kokorsch, Matthias; Karlsdóttir, Anna; Benediktsson, Karl (Springer Nature, 2015-10-14)
    Icelandic fisheries have gone through tremendous changes since the 1980s and the gradual implementation of individual transferable quotas. The paper investigates to what extent the power of different stakeholders in the fisheries management system ...
  • Kokorsch, Matthias (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2018-06)
    Designing a truly sustainable fisheries management regime has been a challenge internationally. Iceland is not an exception in this regard. Icelandic fisheries and their management has gone through tremendous changes since the 1980s. The implementation ...
  • Edvardsson, Kristinn Nikulás; Păstrăv, Cezara; Benediktsson, Karl (Elsevier BV, 2018-08)
    Consolidation of the fishing industry worldwide is an issue heavily debated among scholars. Many economists have argued for its necessity, while others – such as sociologists, anthropologists and geographers – have pointed out negative effects of ...
  • Butler, William (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2020-12)
    The population dynamics of marine fish are driven by many top-down and bottom-up processes operating across multiple life-history stages. The majority of teleosts produce large quantities of offspring which experience high mortality rates early in ...
  • Kokorsch, Matthias; Benediktsson, Karl (Springer Nature, 2018-04)
    Icelandic fish stocks underwent privatisation in 1990, when existing fishing quotas were made fully transferable. The country’s system of individual transferable quotas has since been held up as a paragon of virtue for sustainable fisheries. This might ...
  • Macdonald, Jed (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-05)
    Movements of animals en masse are impressive phenomena that continue to fascinate scientists of all persuasions. Fishes display some of the most striking examples, and an extensive literature has explored the subject in marine species with long ...
