Abstract: "ITQ systems of fisheries management are increasingly recognised as a practical alternative to regulation. Administration of fisheries as common property has failed to ensure sound resource management. Worldwide fisheries management systems are now changing to sustainable utilization. ITQs (Individual Transferable Quotas) are part of this transition. Fisheries management based on ITQs is the best way of ensuring a sustainable and profitable future for California's sea urchin fishery."
