Abstract or Summary
  • Seafish has undertaken an economic impact assessment (EIA) of the landing obligation for key UK fleets targeting demersal stocks. The purpose of the EIA is to provide information that supports decision-making and understanding at a fleet segment, home nation and national level. The EIA has been undertaken in two phases: choke analysis and bioeconomic scenario analysis. The choke analysis provides a view of what the activity of six UK fleet segments would have been in 2013 had the proposed rules for the landing obligation in 2016 and 2019 been in place. This provides a high level, worst case snapshot of choke stocks by fleet indicating how many days fishing could have been achieved in 2013 before the primary choke stock quota was exhausted. The analysis is performed for each major sea area surrounding the UK. Following on from the choke analysis, the scenario analysis answers the question, what are the potential outcomes for the fleet from the introduction of various landing obligation policy levers? The model includes policy levers such as exemptions (de minimis and surviviability), derogations (inter-species flexibility) and quota uplift (top-up) and considers two views of quota held by fleet: initial quota allocation and end of year quota held (approximated by landings). The scenarios simulate the possible outcomes over the coming years and identify issues of resilience, viability and vulnerability in key segments of the UK fleet. This paper presents the model and reviews the methodology used in the two phases of the Seafish UK landing obligation EIA.
