The debate on whether different rules should apply to the artisanal and to the so called « industrial » fisheries respectively is one of the major topics at the ongoing WTO negotiations on fisheries subsidies.
Here is the link to an article (titled "Who’s Harming Fish Stocks? Trawlers or Artisanal Fishers?" by Isolda Agazzi) with the views of some of the actors involved, directly or indirectly, in these negotiations.
My conclusion is that views still differ very much.
