Can fisheries management be quantified?

Hentati Sundberg, Jonas; Hjelm, Joakim


Policy efforts to reduce fisheries impact have often created micro-management. Detailed regulations are restricting the fishing industry, and are also acknowledged to limit the progress towards sustainable management. Industry representatives, political bodies and scientists have therefore argued for more simplicity and transparency. Here, fisheries management is quantified in terms of trends in regulations for different Swedish fisheries in the Baltic Sea during the period 1995-2009. The results suggest that many fisheries are suffering from increased micro-management, but interestingly some fisheries showing a different trend. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
