Under this policy the goal for marine recreational fisheries management was to maintain or improve marine recreational fisheries. Concern over the adverse effects of overfishing, presumably by commercial interests, on recreational fisheries was evident in the policy statement. Three principles underpinned the policy. The first principle stated that management must balance social, cultural, environmental, and economic costs and benefits arising from different uses. The second focused on limiting recreational harvest to within long-term sustainable yields.

At the time, various forms of input controls were used to restrict amateurs, including size limits for retaining fish, daily bag limits, closed seasons, and gear restrictions. The marine recreational fisheries policy announced in 1989 applied to all users of marine recreational fisheries and included both extractive and non-extractive users. The scope of the policy covered traditional forms of recreational fishing and diving as well as commercial big-game fishing and charter fishing. Firms providing commercial recreational opportunities were not included under the umbrella of QMS when introduced in 1986.

Importantly, these two cases will show that institutional design generates asymmetric information on values. The market for tradable rights within the QMS provides information on the value of commercial harvest, but no mechanism exists to provide value estimates of the recreational harvest.

An enhanced scallop fishery provides an illustration of the potential benefits of management that integrates both commercial and noncommercial interests.
