Abstract or Summary
  • The introduction of modern trawl fishing in Norway after the Second World War was intended to be the very platform for the modernisation of the fishing industry. Right up to the end of the seventies, market orientation and the absence of state regulation of fishing were on the agenda. However, the growth of unprofitable overcapacity, increase of international fishing efforts in the Barents Sea and declining resources contributed to the introduction of licences and quotas as a means of control. From the mid-eighties the authorities have initiated a number of capacity-reducing measures. Even so, one can ascertain today that overcapacity, lack of profitability and allocation conflicts still characterise the trawler fleet. This article deals with the growth of the trawler fleet in Norway and elucidates why there is continuing overcapacity in the fleet. Based on these facts, the authorities have launched new and dramatic measures intended to reduce catch capacity. The question now is whether or not the authorities’ new strategy will be the final solution for the problems of overcapacity in the trawler fleet.
