Despite various management measures, the coastal and offshore fisheries of Korea have been experienced considerable decrease in fish catch and stock in the early 2000 and therefore, and therefore, the government of Korea sincerely acknowledge the obligation to increase the productivity of fisheries through the retrieval of depleted fish stocks. On the basis of this consideration in mind, the effective fisheries rebuilding plan (FRP), combined with ecological fish stock enhancement programs (ESEPs), was established in the year 2005. The ESEPs-based FRP management strategy conveys remarkable significance. Without the fisheries closures in FRP, ESEPs-based FRP is one of the effective measures to advocate for the most direct and quickest approach to recover catch levels of overfished fish. The ESEPs-based FRP has been operated from 2006 and is expanded to 16 species in 2016 and has changed the focus of fish stock and catch recovery by allowing relevant fisherman to become involved actively in the events of founding and endorsing the programs, accelerating to the efficient execution of the ESEPs. The contemporary ESEPs is being operating by species stocking, has expanded to encompass the whole ecosystem and greatly contributed to more effective way of FRP for all overfished species in coastal and offshore fisheries in Korea. The findings from the ESEPs-based FRP show that fish stocks and recovery of catches are increasing after the implementation of the program. These increasing trends of recovery as well as expansion in the catch of each species unswervingly has specified as a sake of the accomplishment the FRP and it has also resulted from implementing of the ESEPs under the FRP.
