Muse, Ben. 1994. "Recovering The Costs Of Fishery Management." CFEC 94-11Nb


British Columbia and Australia have been experimenting with cost recovery in commercial fisheries management in recent years. In British Columbia cost recovery has been introduced in individual fisheries in connection with other fishery management initiatives. The Australian Commonwealth government is introducing cost recovery systematically through all commercial fisheries it manages. This paper describes the experiments in these two jurisdictions.
