Transfers and changes of rights

Transfers and other changes to tenure rights

Markets and fishing rights

The right to harvest a certain amount of fish of a particular species, in a designated area, in a given period of time, is usually called a "property right" and is implemented only in Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs). Depending on the countries, those holding the fishing right may be allowed or not to transfer their right by sale to someone else. Transferability tends to be considered as a necessary condition as it is this participation as an "owner" in the fishery, and the future benefits that improved management can bring, that creates the incentive for better management. This in turn has generated the interest of managers in this approach as a better form of fisheries management.
