The Kurt Grönfors Lecture 14 april 2015

Sustainable Fisheries Governance

Sustainable management of fish and fisheries resources is a global challenge, which requires knowledge across natural and social science perspectives. Many of these resources have suffered the effects of open-access conditions with depleted stocks and poor profitability for a long time. Recently, catch share systems and aquaculture have offered solutions to the open-access problem, but at the same time put focus on other types of challenges for sustainable management.

This years Kurt Grönfors Lecture includes speeches by Erik Lindebo, Mike Melnychuk and Ragnar Tveterås that address the issue of sustainable seafood production from three different perspectives.

About the speakers

Erik Lindebo

He holds a PhD in fisheries economics from the University of Southern Denmark. He has over 17 years of professional experience in the field, covering Europe, S-E Asia, North America and Australia/South Pacific, and has collaborated with the FAO, OECD and World Bank. For nine years he worked for the European Commission (DG MARE, European Research Council) and the European Parliament, tasked with the development and adoption of the reformed CFP at various stages. He is now a Senior Consultant for the Environmental Defense Fund and coordinates CFP implementation activities EU-wide, engaging with policy makers, member state authorities, the fishing industry, and other stakeholders.

Michael Melnychuk

He is a fisheries scientist and population ecologist interested in the design of fishery management systems. As a Research Scientist for six years at the University of Washington, he uses data synthesis and meta-analytic approaches to examine the effects of fisheries management practices on the conservation status of marine populations and the socioeconomic status of fisheries at regional and global scales. This includes earlier work focused on biological outcomes of catch share management in fisheries. His doctoral research at the University of British Columbia focused on quantifying mortality patterns of juvenile salmon during their migration downriver and through coastal waters.

Ragnar Tveterås

He is a professor at the University of Stavanger and the current the leader of the Centre for Innovation Research at the University of Stavanger. He earned his PhD at the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen. His research deals with productivity, innovation, market demand and value chain organization focusing on seafood and the energy sector. Recently, Tveterås was the the head of a government commission on the Norwegian Sea food industry.
