The objectives of the general 'Control of Foreign Fishing' Project (CFF) are to develop a suitable system, based on modern mathematical bioeconomics, for developing countries to help them make critical decisions concerning the level of licence fees, surveillance costs, and illegal fishing penalties. Such decisions are needed to assist in maximising the revenue from their fisheries whilst maintaining the resource. This study examines how this can be applied to Namibia where considerable changes have taken place in recent years and a policy of complete control and industry restructuring is developing. Sections look at data availability and the discussions held in this initial visit.
