Technical efficiency in the Swedish trawl fishery for Norway lobster

  title={Technical efficiency in the Swedish trawl fishery for Norway lobster},
  author={H{\aa}kan Eggert},
Reducing fleet capacity in European fisheries is an important objective of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy. The success of such programmes depends both on the variation and the level of efficiency within the fishing fleets. If vessels with significantly lower than average efficiency levels are decommissioned, the actual reduction in fishing capacity will be less than expected. Further, if the remaining vessels are not operating at an efficient level after a decommissioning program… CONTINUE READING
