Abstract or Summary
  • The very restrictive quotas of cod in the Baltic Sea are a strong force for searching alternatives. Since 1996 for instance, the cod quota for the German fishery was reduced from 22 000 t to 13 000 t in the year 2001. And further cuts took place in 2002. However, concerning the Baltic herring, its populations developed well. Nevertheless, the German quota has been used only by 13% because of marketing problems. But these difficulties will be reduced by establishing a new fish processing plant on the island of Ruegen in the near future. Therefore the regional government of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and a PO of Ruegen took an initiative to investigate the possibilities of a revival the spring herring fishery. Before the German unification in the former German Democratic Republic herring fishing was carried out to a great extent. At this Conference we present a paper to estimate, under which biological and economic conditions the spring herring catch can be an economic alternative for cod fishing in the Baltic Sea for a special fleet segment located in Saßnitz. For this purpose we use a mixed integer simulation model built up and funded by EU in a FAIR-Project. It has now been adapted to the conditions of Baltic herring fishery with 26.5 m German bottom trawlers. Different cost items and returns (prices, catches) can be correctly modelled as activities of linear programming.
