(p.147) 5 Exclusion
Beyond the Tragedy in Global Fisheries

D. G. Webster

The MIT Press

The first chapter in Part II tackles the first expected political response based on the AC/SC framework: direct exclusion of outsiders. It shows how the earliest known fisheries management regimes were all based on exclusion, with only minimal implementation of conservation-oriented measures, even when local fisheries were severely over-exploited. It then goes on to show how the desire to exclude fishers from other countries and essentially appropriate fishing grounds helped shaped the formation of sovereign states and then later the development of international law and international fisheries management.

Keywords:   Endowments, entitlements, collective action, sovereignty, piracy, international law of the sea, mare labarum, regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs)
