It emphasizes that institutional capacities and incentives to encourage the right investment choices are essential to ensure that fisheries safeguard fish resources while simultaneously securing livelihoods and generating wealth, which can be re‐invested in the economy and used as a basis for economic growth and poverty reduction.
