Abstract
  • Some amount of of consolidation has occurred under almost every individual quote program that has been implemented. In the most severe cases, fishing fleets have lost over 70% of their vessels. Because of the devastating impact such losses can have on fishing communities, it is vital that the potential for consolidation of fishing fleets be considered when evaluating prospective management programs. The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the importance of considering the individual characteristics of each fishery and each individual quota program, rather than totally dismissing or totally embracing individual quote programs as potential management tools. This paper is divided into six sections. The first discusses basic economics and describes how some of the principles addressed in agricultural economics literature can be applied to fisheries economics. The second section describes the way in which management programs can affect the economics of a fishery. The third describes how ITQ programs affect the economics of a fishery. The fourth section describes how the mount of consolidation can very according to the individual characteristics of the fishery and the specific regulations of the ITQ program.The sixth section contains discussion and conclusions. ITQ program summary tables and economic figures are included at the end of the text.
