This publication contains the final report and background documentation of the Expert Consultation on Catalysing the Transition away from Overcapacity in Marine Capture Fisheries held in Rome, Italy, from 15 to 18 October 2002. The Expert Consultation was intended and designed to develop a set of general recommendations to assist in addressing the difficult subject of overcapacity in marine capture fisheries. The result is guidance about a general, flexible process for assisting the transition of fisheries that are characterized by overcapacity into fisheries that are characterized as fully utilized, economically efficient and that meet the management objectives and goals of the agency or group that has fisheries management responsibility. The experts recognized that different fisheries will likely adopt different capacity reduction programmes to reflect particular social, management, economic and other needs. Because there is no single solution, capacity reduction programmes will likely be a combination of some of the issues and approaches that are also described in the documentation.
