Biodiversity conservation against an export-led industry: fisheries development in Mexico.

This paper presents an analysis of fisheries development in Mexico. We argue that both fostering international trade and marine biodiversity conservation concerns have deeply influenced recent fisheries development in Mexico, causing a number of changes in both laws and institutions. These changes exacerbated several problems like the lack of co-ordination among institutions, user conflicts and illegal fishing. Options for development include co-management of fisheries with well-defined rights for small-scale fisheries subject to international market demands. These instruments may be complemented with marine reserves and ecological certification programmes. The willingness to co-operate, congruence of policy objectives, sound scientific research and the degree of organization of involved users would also play a major role in effective fisheries development in Mexico. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aquatic Resources, Culture and Development Centre for Agricultural Bioscience International
