    Abstract

    Fisheries tend to collapse because of fleet over-capacity, leading to harvesting the stocks of fish beyond their ability to recover. Fishery collapses have been very common, creating economic, social and ecological problems of great complexity. One of the major aims of fisheries management is to avoid fleet overcapacity by directly controlling the fishing effort (input control) or by setting limits to the total catch per season/year and its biological characteristics (output control). On the other hand, fish stocks may also be under-utilized because of fleet under-capacity. This is particularly the case when fleets are artisanal, in initial stages of development, or with poor infrastructure facilities. When fish stocks are under-utilized because of fleet undercapacity there is loss of economic diversification, revenue, employment and food security. In this situation, the prices of sea food are usually higher because domestic supply may not meet the demand.
