This quantity is worried with the position of technological know-how in fishery administration. whereas this has ordinarily been regarded as principally a organic challenge with transparent organic ambitions, shut exam means that administration judgements are principally managed through political, social and fiscal concerns, biologically restricted.

They could not have been completed without the unconstrained cooperation of the many organizations and individuals consulted. While the SIFR was under way, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) decided to widen its consideration of international fisheries research from aquaculture to the entire spectrum of fisheries. The development of this significant new initiative in strategic fisheries research, stimulated in part by the SIFR, is documented in the text of this report.
By the end of the 1970s this had culminated in the extension of jurisdiction over fishery resources to 200 nautical miles off the coast. This extension of jurisdiction had profound effects for both industrial and developing countries. Two effects are particularly important. The first of these was to redistribute fisheries wealth, by allowing the coastal states to extract benefits from the distant-water fishing states through joint ventures and user fees. Among developing countries there is consider-able disparity in the gains acquired through the extension of jurisdiction (FAO 1981).
But in open-access fisheries, any difference between total revenues and total costs amounts to an economic rent4 that is shared by the fishers. This provides them with an income greater than the income they could expect to receive from alternative investments in other forms of employment or in other fisheries (that is, it is greater than their opportunity costs). Where this economic rent exists in a fishery (as in one that is newly developing), the surplus income will attract additional fishers until the total costs of all fishers rise to the point at which they equal total revenues.
