About this item

European Fisheries at a Tipping-Point draws on the fact that the European fishing sector is at a point of no return. It deals with the problem that the privatization of fishing rights and the introduction of Individual Transferable Quotas could create a drastic change in the fishing sector. These new policies risk provoking an irreversible track that would see the death of most of the existing fishing harbours and villages as viable coastal communities and concentrate fishing rights in the hands of a few large mass-producing vessels and plants.

It is our hope that this volume, collecting authors with expert knowledge of fishing and fisheries across Europe, may contribute importantly to the debate on how to develop the management of fisheries without implementing more sea-grabbing and enclosure processes devastating the social, environmental, economic and cultural sustainability of the fisheries of tomorrow.
