Saving fisheries with property rights

Lynne Kiesling

Researchers at PERC have been working on free-market environmentalism and property rights-based approaches to aligning economic and environmental values for decades. This video does an excellent job of highlighting the work that PERC scholars and others have done to make ocean fisheries more sustainable by moving from open-access overfishing to population and profit longevity using catch shares.

It’s the first in a series of videos PERC will produce to highlight real-world conservation arising from property rights-based policies and practices.

Property rights in ocean fisheries is a frequent topic here, as indicated by our post history, which I encourage you to explore if you want to learn more about this important topic.
