Sample text

The usual answer to the first part of this question is ‘regulators and fishers’, but there is a growing feeling in certain quarters that 12 GRAY other groups of stakeholders should also be included, representing anglers, fish processors, conservation agencies, environmental NGOs, consumers, and recreational interests (Mikalsen and Jentoft 2001). And what about scientists? Should fish biologists and marine ecologists be represented in co-management councils, rather than be assigned an advisory role as experts?

He argues that fishers’ contribution to this advice would be especially valuable, and he explains how the North Sea Commission Fisheries Partnership (NSCFP) was established in 2000 to provide a forum for fishers, scientists and others to develop a more collaborative method of fish stock assessment. The NSCFP was the prototype for the North Sea RAC, set up by the European Commission in 2004, but this is only a first step towards the goal of a more participatory CFP. In chapter 5, David Symes interprets the RACs from the perspective of regionalisation, importantly linked to the concepts of ecosystem-based management and spatial planning.

He shows how the thinking behind the RACs is bound up with the EU’s commitment to good governance and the 2002 CFP reform process. However, Symes points out some of the difficulties faced by the RACs – including ensuring the representativeness of stakeholders; arriving at consensus; and delivering environmental integration of fisheries policy – and he concludes that the jury is out on their likely effectiveness. The sixth chapter, by Hans-Kristian Hernes, Svein Jentoft and Knut Mikalsen, shifts the focus of stakeholder participation in fisheries governance from regionalisation to social justice.
