Access and Allocation in International Fisheries Jurisdictions

The intern is expected to conduct a comparative study of what modifications are warranted to access and allocation processes of Canadian fisheries policy and legislation. Looking at the policies in place in other countries the aim is to identify policies that can be viably implemented into the Canadian context. It appears that within jurisdictions around the world, there have been successful implementations of innovating policies, which have enhanced the viability of resource management, and successful conservation measures. If the research results show that it is warranted to tie resources closely to adjacent land, implementation of it is likely to increase the economically viability of rural areas relying on the fisheries, in Newfoundland and Labrador. Therefore, the work by the intern may become part of a new integrated approach to the development of Canadian fisheries policies.
