Introducing fisheries subsidies explains why fishery subsidies are of concern, discusses alternatives to subsidies, explains why they are implemented and briefly considers the difficulties caused by their existence. The discussion then sharpens the focus to analyse a number of relevant topics. The final chapter considers current discussions on how the international community might be able to impose sufficient discipline to bring the subsidies that stimulate overfishing under control. There follows a more technical discussion of the linkage between fishery subsidies and their effects on sustainability and trade.
