Defining incentives and claims in Aquaculture Improvement Projects


F Kruijssen, V Bitzer, A Sonneveld, C Steijn

Aquaculture improvement projects (AIPs) have recently emerged as a new form of market-based and non-state governance in the aquaculture sector. They embody multi-stakeholder efforts that leverage the influence of the private sector to drive improvements in aquaculture production and ensure that these changes endure through improved policy and management strategies. This paper is based on a comprehensive literature review and four empirical cases illustrating different experiences with improvement projects in and beyond aquaculture.
