Capturing economic benefits from the Pacific’s tuna resources-- FFA Policy Brief

In this Policy Brief originally published as part of a collection of four externally contributed articles in the July Pacific Economic Monitor of the Asian Development Bank, FFA's Chris Reid, Alice McDonald and Leonard Rodwell conclude their report noting that Agency member nations are continuing to develop and implement policies at the regional and subregional levels in order to implement rights-based management systems to allow them to take control of the WCPO tuna fisheries, set limits that achieve their objectives, and allocate rights among the participating coastal states.
FFA members are also developing policies at the national level to enhance the management of their allocated rights, and ensure that they are able to extract maximum benefi ts from rights that they have created under regional rights-based management arrangements.
