Typology of management measures

Fisheries management comprises different types of regulatory measures that may influence fishing firms and fleets behaviour. They may ration the production possibilities of vessels or/and give fishermen economic incentives to change their behaviour. However, fisheries management tools are heterogeneous in nature and their aims could be different. A typology of management measures has been operated for a selection of E.U. fleets. Based on this typology, a review of the regulations applicable to the different fleets has been carried out. One of the main conclusions of the study is that all the fleets operate in a context of individual access allocation, either through the control variable of effort or catches or both.
