Abstract or Summary
  • For decades, the management of the Dutch flatfish fishery has included a variety of measures including individual transferable quotas (ITQ) and the implementation of a co-management system without succeeding in recovering the fishery to sustainable levels partly because of the multispecies aspect of the fishery with the two main commercial species being two main species sole (Solea solea) and plaice (Pleuronectes platessa). Although fishers must hold quota for both species, discarding and highgrading are allowed i.e. catch can legally be above the TAC. Only since the long-term management plan was implemented in 2008, have the stocks of the sole and plaice recovered close to or within safe biological limits. In this study we investigate the Dutch ITQ system and the influence of its design on the behaviour of the fishers and subsequently on the outcomes of the flatfish management. We use a bioeconomic model to explore the impacts of changing the trade mechanism and trade structure of individual quotas and for example allowing international tradability of quota. The socio-economic effects of quota tradability are examined.
