Economic advice on fisheries policy

This research provides insight into important questions on fisheries policy.

More specifically, the following questions are answered:

  • What is the possible role of producing organizations (POs) for the market under the new European government regulation?
  • How can the contribution of economics at the CFP be strengthened?
  • How can the collection of economic data within the data for fisheries regulation be strengthened?

For getting the answers, LEI Wageningen UR carries out a literature review. The study is combined with interviews with stakeholders. Results in 2011 are for example a report to the Dutch Ministry of EL&I on the possible role of POs under the new regulation. Also three other reports to the European Commission are produced: about the economic situation of European fisheries, the impact of TACs and management and on data regulation.
