Abstract or Summary
  • Most fish stocks worldwide are not optimally exploited and are therefore are producing less in biologic and economic terms that what it could be obtained. MSY objective for all the stocks by 2015 is put forward by several countries as management target to be achieved, while other countries such as Australia have moved towards MEY as target. In multi-species and multi-fleet fisheries however single species assessments and MSY and MEY reference points are often not valid. In this paper, we analyze the calculation of MSY and MEY in multi-species and multi-fleet fisheries, applied to the Bay of Biscay demersal fisheries. Estimations of MSY and MEY performed in this paper show that increases of the overall landings and economic performances can be obtained by fishing effort reductions and global selectivity improvements in the Bay of Biscay demersal fishery. In this paper we have also shown the importance of accounting for the multi-fleet nature of the fisheries, and so the capacity to allocate fishing effort between fleets to obtain better yields taking into account joint production processes, various métiers and reallocation of effort (both in production and economic terms). Estimating profitability changes when fishing at MEY and in the current situation of overcapacity and overexploitation offers an estimation of the costs of not fishing at MSY and MEY.
