How do issues change when you look at them through an ecosystem based management lens. The concept of eco-labeling as described in the following brief is being applied to different species based on how they are caught and the fishery is managed. The basic idea is that consumers are willing to pay more for seafood that is caught in a demonstrably sustainable way as indicated by the awarding of the eco-label. What are the implications of this approach for ecosystem-based fisheries management. Will consumers pay more for seafood harvested under an ecosystem-based fisheries management plan. This brief explores the challenges of moving from the single species eco-labeling concept to the ecosystem level.
