Abstract
  • The objective of the paper is to briefly present a comparative analysis of trends in the characteristics of selected European fleets, observed over the last fifteen years, as an introduction to three empirical studies of the behavioural determinants of these trends. The analysis presented aims at (i) describing changes observed in the characteristics and production of the selected fleets; and (ii) gaining some insights as to the factors driving these changes. Fleets included in the analysis are the Galician fleets operating in the Celtic Sea, the Basque trawler fleets, the South-Brittany trawler fleets, the UK North-Sea beam trawler fleets, and the Dutch large cutter and Eurocutter fleets. Results show that despite their diversity in terms of size, technical characteristics, and production, most of these fleets have been decreasing in size, with an associated stagnation or decrease in total landed value. In most of the fleets, there has been a tendency for the average power and tonnage of vessels to at least be maintained, and often to increase. The presentation serves as an introduction to three empirical studies of behaviour, focusing on explaining changes in the characteristics, activity and/or production of the fleets based on an analysis of behaviour.
