Abstract or Summary
  • Norway is probably among the most obvious beneficiaries of globalisation, mainly because of the rich natural resources, skilled labour, advanced technology products and strong institutions. The fishing industry has been on the forefront in adjusting to new challenges and seeking the potential gains of economic integration, liberalisation and deregulation. The international orientation and exposure to fluctuations and rapid change have been key features of the industry for centuries, mainly due to extensive export and trade. Consequently the fishing industry is well accustomed to the drivers and forces of globalisation. The national windfall benefits arising from globalisation do however add further pressure on the fishing industry in terms of continuous efficiency improvements, cost increases and greater competition. Given the limited nature of fisheries resources, regulation is a prerequisite to ensure sustainability, economic rents and national policy objectives. On the other hand the regulatory set-up should take into account the gains which arise from deregulation and greater flexibility, and empower the industry to maintain its competitiveness. Evidently both industry and government are faced with risks and challenges and the key concern is how to cope with these while at the same time reaping the benefits. Within the context of fisheries globalisation issues like global governance and enforcement, IUU-fishing, level playing field, market access, food prices, foreign investments, relocation and fragmentation of production carry great importance. This paper explores the key challenges to the management of fisheries and how they are addressed through Norwegian policy priorities.
