Adaptive Governance

This chapter focuses on the management measures implemented to protect the southern swordfish stock. International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas member states have supported stringent measures to prevent overexploitation of the stock. The peculiar geographic location of the stock of southern Atlantic swordfish results in its extensive exploitation by developing coastal countries compared with the northern states. Several moderately vulnerable fleets engaged in swordfish fishing are expected to express more concern about its extensive exploitation, and are also expected to block or oppose any measures that will restrict the expansion and operation of the fleets. Moderately vulnerable fleets from coastal states can also expand the power of national responses compared with the northern swordfish case.

Keywords:   southern swordfish, stringent measures, coastal countries, geographic location, northern states
