Abstract or Summary
  • The European Common Fisheries Policy landing obligation has introduced significant uncertainty over quota uptake in the coming years. This year (2016) is the first year of the landing obligation for fleets targeting demersal stocks even though it will not be fully introduced across demersal quota stocks until 2019. A recent Seafish economic impact assessment of the landing obligation for UK fleets targeting demersal stocks highlights the challenges facing fleets in the face the landing obligation. Assuming imperfect allocation of quota, that does not reflect catch composition by fleets, in mixed fisheries fleets, quota uptake could be significantly lower than seen in recent history. Not only this, the landing obligation obliges vessels to land all catch. This will see fish not marketable for human consumption landed and sent for fishmeal or bait for example. This paper considers UK whitefish fleets that predominantly target cod, haddock and whiting and presents an economic impact assessment of the effects of CFP policy on not only the fleets but the markets that they provide for. It also considers the conflict between core objectives of achieving MSY and the landing obligation. Bioeconomic modelling is linked to value chain analysis to evaluate a number of scenarios to inform on the impact of European regulation on the competitiveness and sustainability of the UK whitefish sector in the European context. Initial findings suggest that choke species in 2019 will impact supply of fish to markets significantly, impacting fleets and requiring markets to adjust.
