Abstract or Summary
  • The Baltic fishery is managed under the European Union Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) which defines procedures for setting annual total allowable catches (TAC) for major commercially harvested species. TACs are given as fixed shares to each member state by applying the principal of relative stability. Poland uses non-tradable individual vessel quotas (IVQ) in order to allocate their TACs within their fishery fleet. The lack of tradability of the IVQs as well as the long-term tradition in fishery slowed down an adaptation of the Polish fleets towards changing fish stocks in the Baltic. The resulting overcapacity motivated the Polish government to implement time-limited scrapping program (2009-2011) to create exit incentives. This paper analyzes the remaining post-buyback inefficiencies of the Polish fishing fleet looking at the production structure of major fleet segments. Logbook data of 2012 is used to estimate multi-output and multi-input distance function. Calculated (Morishima) elasticities of substitution are used to determine the flexibility of the fleet in terms of targetability and substitutability between inputs defined as on-site effective effort (E), capital (K) and the travel distance (R). Policy recommendations are derived to increase fleet efficiency besides the first-best solution of tradable quotas.
