Managing overcapacity in small-scale fisheries

The purpose of this chapter is to present and discuss the concept and assessment of over capacity in small-scale marine fisheries, and the appropriate and integrated approaches to facilitating the removal of overcapacity. The chapter should assist governments and fisheries managers to prepare national and fishery-specific plans of action for the management of capacity in small-scale fisheries.
