Abstract or Summary
  • Fisheries economists and fishery scientists have forcefully argued that access to fisheries has to be restricted so as to increase stock size, harvest and/or profitability compared to what would be the results of free access. Fisheries economists have pointed out that management by Individual Transferable Quotas (ITQs for short) fare better than other systems of management considered. It is the purpose of this paper to ask what kind of resource stewardship would best serve different stakeholders in an ITQ fishery. The stakeholders in focus are quota holders, non-quota-holding fishing firms (skippers) and processors. It is shown, utilizing a simple model, that non-quota holding fish firms would argue for smaller steady-state size of the fish stock than would quota holding firms. Fishery managers may find themselves in the line of fire between the two. The final outcome may well be decided by the political weight of either group.
