The book is aimed at a broad stakeholder audience, including policymakers in the fields of trade, fisheries, environmental economics and international environmental governance, as well as academics and others looking for an overview of the fisheries subsidies issue and an introduction to its technical by: In drafting sustainability criteria for fisheries subsidies it is important to clarify the objectives.

Based on the limited entry technique (LET) policy in fisheries, the analyses consider fisheries subsidies as a trade policy tool from a demand and supply perspective on resource extraction and.

Subsidies can make fishing profitable even when fishery resources are in decline. In offsetting the economic incentives for fishermen to exit the industry, subsidies effectively maintain fishing capacity at levels that vastly exceed what is appropriate for sustainable fishing (Cox, ).

The book is actually a compilation of a long work developed by UNEP in the last 10 years about the complex relation between subsidies and sustainability in the fisheries activity. At present, the World Trade Organization (WTO) is developing a large discussion about the national subsidies in fisheries.

Global fisheries subsidies were estimated at about USD 35 billion in dollars. • Harmful subsidies constituted the highest categories provided at over $ 20 billion. • Harmful subsidies are highest category in all regions except North America. • Fuel subsidies are largest of the total subsidy at 22%.

The effects of subsidies on the sustainability of resources are created by induced changes in costs or revenues. Costs may include the costs of variable inputs, the costs of investment in new technology or in additional productive capacity.

The effects of subsidies will depend on the extent to which fishing effort is controlled. Book Review: Fisheries Subsidies, Sustainable Development and the WTO Article in International Journal of Maritime History 23(2).

Fisheries scientists and management have been using indicators and criteria of sustainability for a long time even though the terminology was not in general use.

For example, catch rates, stock biomass, recruitment levels, costs, revenues, etc. are traditionally calculated (and often standardized) in fishery science and can be related to. Fisheries have rarely been 'sustainable'. Rather, fishing has induced serial depletions, long masked by improved technology, geographic expansion and exploitation of previously spurned species.SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES AND RESPONSIBLE AQUACULTURE: A Guide for USAID Staff and Partners June DISCLAIMER The authors’ views expressed in this publication do not necessarily reflect the views of the United States.
