Product description

Fish are a so-called common-pool resource. This means that a fish in the sea belongs to us all, and only becomes the property of the individual fisherman once caught. Therefore, at first glance, the economic incentive for the fisherman to leave the fish in the sea seems to be low. The fisherman can start earning money right away with every fish he catches. However, if you consider the environmental and economic consequences, it often makes more sense not to catch every single fish now. Because a fully-grown fish in the sea has a long-term value for all of us: it grows and reproduces and maintains the fish stocks for the future. So both the community as a whole as well as the individual fishermen enjoy lasting benefits.

The Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean" in Kiel researches sustainable fishing. Experts from the marine sciences have joined forces with economists, legal scholars and geographers in order to investigate how the world's oceans and marine resources can be exploited sustainably.
