Abstract or Summary
  • Rights based management (RBM) regimes in fisheries might prevent the rent-dissipation associated with open access as fishers are enabled to coordinate efforts. In this article, I empirically explore the effects of introducing two spatially distinct RBM reforms in the Swedish shrimp fishery at two different points in time during the period 1997-2013. The offshore part of the fishery remains a regulated open access (ROA) throughout the whole time period. A coastal co-managed area is formed in year 2000 and a TURF is established within a marine reserve in 2004. I use data from all three management regimes of the fishery and carry out difference-in-differences analysis in order to analyze how the number of participants and different degrees of exclusivity across management regimes impact on coordination efforts. I find that the coordination efforts within the TURF allow fishers to extend the season, maintain the catch per unit effort, and to build up a brand that sustains a positive price effect over time. In the Co-management, the larger number of participants inhibits coordination and the introduction of the regime leads to a decline in catch per unit effort and prices.
