Improvement Measures of Coastal and Offshore Fishing Permit System Corresponding to Fishing Condition Changes
Report No. 2018-09 Research Manager Sun Hee, Um
File
- Conditions for coastal and offshore fishing in Korea are changing due to declining and aging fishery population, reducing resources and changing trade environments.
∙ As of 2017, the number of fishery households and fishery population stood at 53,000 households and 122,000 persons respectively, which was reduced by 400 households (0.8%) and 3,900 persons (3.1%) from one year earlier.
∙ Among 33 major species of fish, 54% turned out to be overfishing or excessive fishing.
∙ The number of vessels of Korea stood at 43,000 as of 2016, with over 21 year-old fishing vessels accounted for 26.9%.
∙ The expansion of FTA and the emergence of new trade regulations have raised the concern for deteriorating fishing environments including the ban on fishery subsidies.
- Conflicts between coastal fishing and offshore fishing and illegal fishing have continued to take place.
∙ In 2017, Korea’s fishing production amounted to 832,490 tons (3 trillion 711.5 billion won), a 4% decrease from 2016. This consists of 179,063 tons (1 trillion 335.6 billion won) of coastal fishing and 637,512 tons (2 trillion 310.8 billion won) of offshore fishing.
∙ During the last two decades, coastal fishing has expanded its fishing operation towards offshore sea, while offshore fishing towards coastal sea.
- Having failed to reflect industrial conditions and global environmental changes, Korea’s fishing permit system has undermined the competitiveness of the fishery industry. The fishing permit system has caused the following problems;
∙ First, conflicts have continued to take place because fishing grounds for coastal and offshore fishing have not decided.
∙ Second, permits are renewed regardless of whether fishing is conducted or not or the quota of permits, raising concerns of overfishing.
∙ Third, due to the poor management of fishing permit system, those received fishing permits are increasingly taking them as a privilege, preventing new workers from entering to the industry.
∙ Fourth, complex regulations for the fishing severely restrict the autonomy of fishermen, which leads to illegal fishing.
