The Mexican Pescadores de Vigía Chico Cooperative is a group-allocated, area-based catch share that manages the Punta Allen spiny lobster fishery. The catch share, or Territorial Use Rights for Fishing (TURF) program, includes a number of special design features to achieve goals set by the Mexican government and the Cooperative, including sustainable harvests and Cooperative self-sufficiency and self-governance. Important design features include a secure tenure length of 20 years with a strong assumption of renewal, clearly defined co-management responsibilities between the federal government and the Cooperative and the use of individual fishing zones developed by the Cooperative to maintain member accountability (Solares-Leal and Alvarez-Gil, 2003).
