The Baja California Regional Federation of Fishing Cooperative Societies (FEDECOOP) is a groupallocated, area-based catch share, or Territorial Use Rights for Fishing (TURF), program. FEDECOOP consists of 13 fishing Cooperatives that collectively manage 10 TURFs to promote sustainable harvests, increase market access and power and provide stability to fishermen and fishing communities. The catch share program is a model for coordination across multiple Cooperatives and TURFs to achieve fishery goals. Key design features include voluntary no-take reserves to increase productivity and protect vulnerable fish species and the evolution of FEDECOOP to coordinate activities and provide services to multiple Cooperatives and TURFs.
