Abstract or Summary
  • By 2015 The European Common Fisheries Policy Reform includes a discard ban (landing obligation) in some fisheries and over the next few years all EU fisheries will be facing the discard ban restriction. This is one of the most significant changes of the Common Fishery Policy since 1983. In spite of that, there is a lack of theoretical as well as empirical analyses of the consequences of a discard ban policy. This paper includes the microeconomic foundation for analyzing the impact of a discard ban and empirical analyses of the economic impacts of the EU discard ban primarily related to the Danish fishery. In the first part of the paper, we survey the fisheries economics literature for theoretical findings regarding behavioural aspects of a discard ban and we explore gaps in the current state of knowledge. A simple model for analysing fleet behaviour under a discard ban regime is presented and subsequently applied in an empirical analysis of the short-term economic implications of a discard ban for the Danish fleet. Results are presented under differing assumptions regarding quotas and selectivity. Finally, considering the long-term aspect of fisheries management, some preliminary findings regarding the impact of stock dynamics are included in the paper.
