Abstract or Summary
  • Closed areas are often used as either temporary or permanent measures to reduce fishing pressure on stocks. A major concern, however, is what happens to the effort that was previously employed in these areas. When modelling the potential impacts of the closed areas, it is necessary to model changes in fisher behaviour. However, most models have relied on assumptions based on previous behaviour that assume fishers will follow similar patterns. In 2001, an area of the North Sea was closed to fishing that had previously been heavily exploited. While most fishers reallocated effort to previously exploited grounds, a number reallocated their effort to grounds that had not been exploited in the last century. In this paper, the relationship between the characteristics of both the outré-istic and orthodox group of fishers and their behaviour are examined using a logit modelling approach in order to better understand fisher behaviour.
