Sustainable fisheries management is a core pillar of a climate-resilient fishery. Some of the best examples of well-managed fisheries around the world are those that include secure fishing rights. These management systems allocate a secure share of the fishery—in the form of quota and/or area—to fishers and communities, fortifying their abilities to serve as stewards of the marine environment.
