Abstract: "During the last 20 years explicit management of marine fish stocks has become ubiquitous for fisheries nations across the world. Fisheries management is concerned with the transformation of scientific advice on optimum sustainable yield into functional policy through direct control of harvesting intensity and pattern. Stock enhancement is a logical extension of this idea. Here one tries to increase the output of a given stock by supplementing reared juveniles when natural recruitment is low, or by channeling more of the energy flow through desired species. In this paper I will discuss institutional and organizational problems that must be solved if the enhancement is going to be transformed from an interesting idea to practical reality."
