The crisis in the fishing industry has gradually led to increasingly rigorous rights and rules of fishermen's activities. This, therefore, places fisheries management institutions in the very centre of the debate, where the possible solutions to the problems may be found. The current crisis in fisheries management can thus be argued to be caused to some degree by a lack of legitimacy of several management regimes. Governmentcentred regulation which has been applied in the past (quota management, input restriction, limited entry and individual fishing quotas) creates incentives to race for fish, break the rules and to mis-report catches. In addition it has also been expensive to administer and enforce these rules.
