Title: A Developing Country Puts A Halt To Foreign Overfishing
Authors: Nichols, P.
ASFA Terms: Overfishing
Issue Date: Jan-2003
Citation: Economic perspectives, 8 (1).
Abstract: Foreign fishing fleets drastically overfished the waters off Namibia before that country gained independence in 1990, according to Paul Nichols, Special Adviser to the Namibian Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources. Since then, the Government has taken strong regulatory actions that have brought overfishing under control and allowed depleted fish stocks to rebuild while gaining strong support for the policy among Namibia's commercial fishers.
