Individual transferable quotas (ITQs) are a version of what are now popularly called “catch shares”, a regulatory tool that some governments use to control fishing (Essington [] provides a recent assessment of catch shares).Cited by:

      Those officials issued long-term ITQs (called Individual Fishing Quotas or IFQs in the Alaskan crab industry) to fishing boat owners. IFQs were guaranteed shares of the TACs, with the assumption being that the boats could actually catch the crabs. Processors, in turn, were guaranteed specific shares of the catch to freeze or can (these were. Quotas slow up the pace because each vessel is allotted a specific amount they can haul in. This leads to safer and more environmentally sound techniques while helping to reduce bycatch. Those who argue against fishing quotas say they make it difficult for smaller fishing operations and virtually impossible for a new fleet to get in on the action.

      Capture fisheries around the world are increasingly being managed with individual fishing quotas (IFQs). Today, about onequarter of the global marine harvest is managed with IFQs [1]. Under an IFQ Author: Ragnar Arnason. The possibility to introduce individual transferable quotas in the regulatory mechanisms, that is, the capacity to give and assign every fisherman and individual right to fish a determined quantity of a stock during an specific period is defendd by certain scholars as the most efficient way to reach a greater valorisation of resource and.

This differs from the traditional open-access approach to commercial fisheries. ITQs divide the total annual catch quota into smaller individual portions. The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is the fisheries policy of the European Union (EU). It sets quotas for which member states are allowed to catch each type of fish, as well as encouraging the fishing industry by various market interventions.
