Abstract: Detailed assessment of governance architecture for the shared stocks of the Central American lobster fisheries. Its purpose is to dissect and display the suite of governance arrangements for the six major issues identified for the Central American lobster fisheries in the Caribbean, in order to facilitate discussion among stakeholders. This discussion can lead to shared perceptions of what should be in place, what principles should be prominent and how the system should be structured. The assessment is not intended to lead to a prescriptive output regarding what should be in place. Nonetheless, some broad observations can be made on aspects of the system that need attention if arrangements are to be structured in a way that is likely to lead to effective governance, including the promotion of inter-sectoral and inter-issue integration that is needed for an ecosystem approach.
