Nordic Fisheries in Transition

Future Challenges to Management and Recruitment

image of Nordic Fisheries in Transition

In the last decades Nordic countries have been implementing quota markets and similar instruments to manage mainly the economic performance of their fisheries. Coming from a historical situation dominated by owner-operated fishing units closely connected to their supporting communities, market-based fisheries management plays a role in promoting company-organised fishing units, non-fisher ownership and new social relations. Introducing market-mechanisms to distribute the limited marine resources is therefore not just a change in the technical regulation. It is an active engagement in social change. The publication reviews the Nordic experiences with market-based fisheries management and discusses the implications for managers and future recruitment.

Sammendrag

I denne udgivelse præsenterer vi to forskningsprojekter, der begge undersøger forandringer i de nordiske fiskerierhverv. Projekterne er blevet til som en forberedelse til Nordic Marine Think Tank’s konference om fremtidens udfordringer for de nordiske landes fiskerierhverv. Konferencen finder sted i Stockholm 2018 og vil se nærmere på brugen af markedsbaserede forvaltningssystemer herunder omsættelige fiskekvoter. Målet med konferencen er at diskutere de hidtidige erfaringer i de nordiske lande og bidrage til at fremme forståelsen af systemernes påvirkning af kystsamfund, fiskeflåder, økonomi og samfund.
