Example text

Fishers and governments have to support the buyback, and realize that change has to occur, and that the process is not arbitrary. Who Pays for Buybacks? Governments have largely funded buybacks. The World Bank (2004) observes that public funding may be appropriate initially in terms of correcting past policy errors and that buyback schemes are effectively government subsidies for the improved performance of the fishing industry. The EU has largely funded the MAGP, although various EU member states have financed portions of the buybacks.

Buybacks and Incentives Buybacks by themselves do not directly address the ill-structured property right that underlies misaligned private and social incentives and, in turn, noncooperation, overcapacity, and overfishing in the fishery. Moreover, without the critical precondition of a strengthened property or use right, or most critically, limited access at a minimum, improved conditions from a buyback reinforce existing private incentives of open access that attract new entrants to the fishery, reinvestment by current participants, or expanded fishing activity in the race to fish.

Some nonsupporters will become deterrents. Nonsupporters can come from the fishery in question or from people outside of the industry who sincerely do not want such an approach. Flexibility is required throughout the process, since the unexpected arises. This flexibility may require retracing steps or even starting over. Fishers and governments have to support the buyback, and realize that change has to occur, and that the process is not arbitrary. Who Pays for Buybacks? Governments have largely funded buybacks.
