Technical efficiency in EU fisheries: Implications for monitoring and management through effort control

Objective

OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
An understanding of the relationship between the quantity of inputs employed in fishing and the resultant catch is an essential pre-condition for effective management, especially where inputs are controlled. While most fisheries in the EU are managed though aggregate output controls, ensuring that the fleet catching capacity is in line with the harvest limits has become an important feature of the Structural Policy of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) In most EU countries, fleet reduction has been required through the Multi-Annual Guidance Programme.

In addition, improving the efficiency of the existing fleet is also an important goal of the CFP Despite the importance of improving efficiency and attempting to balance productive capacity with harvest levels, relatively little analysis has been conducted in the EU on the level of efficiency in EU fishing fleets and the potential harvesting capacity of the existing fleet (as compared with the current capacity).
