    Overfishing is one of the greatest threats to the health and sustainability of ocean ecosystems. It also poses a threat to the 3 billion people around the world who rely on seafood as an important source of protein and the millions of fishing industry workers who depend on stable wild fish populations for a steady stream of income. Unsustainable fishing—caused by poor fisheries management and wasteful fishing practices—is depleting the world’s fisheries, hurting the seafood industry and impacting marine ecosystems. However, there is hope. There is a growing number of examples where both fish and fishermen are thriving thanks to a change in incentives that aligns fishermen’s economic interest with the biological health of fish stocks. These fishery management systems—catch shares—also known as rights-based management systems have increased fishermen’s well-being and supported the rebuilding of healthy fish populations.

Featuring Kate Bonzon (2003 Fellow) of the Environmental Defense Fund, this webinar, Rights-Based Management: A Global Movement Toward Sustainability in Fisheries, examines how well-designed catch share programs can provide more fish in the water, more food on the plate and more prosperous communities citing examples of fisheries around the world.
