Abstract or Summary
  • There is an increasing demand for marine space from many different economic sectors in the German coastal and exclusive economic zone: sand and gravel removal, wind farms, fisheries, shipping or oil and gas exploration. Additionally, the Natura 2000 directive requires the declaration of areas for nature con-servation. Opposite to other economic activities, fishing is not connected with distinct rights on areas or on specific fishing grounds. First assessments show that fishermen may face heavy losses in case of the exclusive allocation of space to other activities. In the first part we depict the different economic activities in the German EEZ and the current process of spatial planning. Then we give an overview on the legal framework including the property rights system in the fishing sector. In the third part we calculate pro-spective losses in the scenario of the closure of huge areas for fishing. It will be shown that the approval process for wind farms underestimates the consequences for fisheries due to the lack of data. In many cases a reallocation of fishing effort will not be viable because of the dependency of certain species on specific habitats and their low abundance in surrounding areas. Especially small scale fishermen can only fish near the shore. Their individual quota can be interpreted as a strong property right. A closure of areas may have the same effect as a dispossession. Finally, we give an outlook on the possible process in marine spatial planning in the coming years.
