The second part of these proceedings contains papers of presentations made
during the workshop sessions, addressing national experiences in the
design, implementation and modification of rights-based systems of
fisheries management. The presentations included those made from the
perspective of the fishing industry, government policy-makers and
administrators and the legal implications as a consequence of national
systems of law. Those concerned with the social and economic implications
of this form of management reviewed the implications for communities
affected by such changes in fisheries management approach. Many papers
describe specific national implementation experiences, both positive and
negative, and national programme successes and "less-than-successes".
Other papers deal with the social, economic and legal theory appertaining
to this form of management.
