The Catch Share Design Team trains and educates fishery managers, fishermen, government officials, and other stakeholders to design and implement rights-based management programs. Our innovative research and analysis help managers solve environmental, social and economic problems to produce sustainable and profitable fisheries through market-based conservation tools. As the leading authority on catch shares, we are uniquely positioned to help fisheries thrive.
