Abstract or Summary
  • On the background of the abolishment of traditional subsidies this paper discusses the persistency of the major remaining subsidy scheme in Norwegian fisheries: exemption from fuel taxes. The reimbursement scheme stems from the late 1980s, and has been persistent since, under different governments. This paper gives the background for this support against theoretical predictions on subsidies' effects on fishing behaviour and profitability. For 2011 the estimated exempted fuel taxes to the fishing fleet is 999.0 million NOK, amounting to 6.3 per cent of the landed value, against 772.7 million NOK (6.4 per cent of landed value) in 2007. Also, the Norwegian scheme is discussed against similar arrangements in other countries. The national fishing fleet is heterogeneous with respect to oil consumption in transport and fishing operations. Hence, the effect of the fuel subsidies is different along different fleet components. The implications of abolishing this subsidy for the fishing fleet in general, for different vessel groups, as well as for policy implications are discussed.
