Article
In the last four decades there has been a significant increase in experiences to implement marine spatial planning and the interest of the scientific community in evaluating the impacts of these policies. In this context, a lack of tools and techniques to be applied to the evaluation of strictly economic impacts is evident. Based on knowledge of th...
Article
The complex nature of the Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) requires the integration and consideration of multiple elements, ranging from the ecological and environmental to the socio-economic as well as the political, institutional or cultural. To succeed, the public policies demand techniques and tools that allow to evaluate the effects or impacts on...
Article
The need to plan the maritime space arises from the competition for the use of a scarce resource (the maritime space). It is assumed that the planning helps to resolve this type of conflicts, enabling greater economic benefits for society. In spite of this, a first review of the economic literature offers few examples of estimation of the economic...
Article
Characteristics and evolution of the Galician fishing fleet operating in the Celtic Sea are reviewed in a context of Spanish regulation and successive reforms of the European Common Fisheries Policy. This paper analyses the most significant aspects of fishing management that have affected this fleet's activity while linking the institutional framew...
Article
Fishing activity is conditioned by diverse factors that determine and limit the capacity of fishermen to decide on their level of production (i.e., the fisheries output is determined exogenously). In the context of the input-output analysis, models have been developed that permit the assessment of socioeconomic impacts of an activity, but almost al...
Article
In the context of fishery management based on the ecosystem-based approach, it is necessary to develop methods and tools in order to facilitate the decision making and balance the socioeconomic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. The goal of this document consists of providing an assessment tool of the possible socioeconomic impacts ari...
Article
Input-output models are commonly used to assess socioeconomic impacts. These models typically evaluate exogenous variations in demand-related elements; however, they do not fully capture the associated effects of backward and forward sectoral linkages simultaneously. An analysis from the supply perspective is of greater interest to economic sectors...
Article
Public participation in the decision-making process is a key element of good governance. In its latest proposals for reforming the Common Fisheries Policy, the European Commission acknowledges that management measures lack legitimacy without input from the fishers themselves and thus underscores the need to increase it and adapt it to local or regi...
Chapter
The M. merlucius species is listed within the group of demersal beings and therefore a fish stock of long life. Although it is distributed in the area located between the coast north of Morocco and the North Sea, the ICES valued it separately since 1979, distinguishing two biological units: Northern stock (corresponding to zones IV, VI, and VII and...
Article
In recent years, and within the context of the EU, policies relating to the sea and oceans are being looked at from a more inclusive perspective. Although the growing socio-economic importance of the sea is increasingly evident in Europe, serious difficulties still exist when it tries to quantify marine economics, making it more difficult to adopt...
Article
Since the European hake stock is overexploited and presents reduced reproductive capacity, the European Commission (EC) drew up a Recovery Plan, which aims to return this species within biological safety limits in ten years (EC, 2005). In this chapter, we will evaluate this management plan, put forward different scenarios and analyse how levels of...
Article
In 2011, the European Commission will make its legislative proposal for the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy public. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the direction the possible reforms to be implemented in the Fisheries Structural Policy will take. In order to do so, we will look at the recent results of the policy and its current situa...

1. INTRODUCCIÓN En el segundo Libro Verde sobre la reforma de la Política Pesque-ra Común (PPC), publicado por la Comisión Europea (European Commission, 2009), se realiza un balance de la PPC en el que explí-citamente se reconoce su fracaso relativo. Este resultado sobre todo se relaciona con el hecho de no haber podido atajar el estado de sobrepes...
Article
The sinking of the Prestige oil tanker on 18 November 2002 off the coast of Galicia, Spain, had important economic, environmental and social ramifications. The aim of this paper is to carry out an initial analysis of the costs related to a halt in fishing activities in Galicia between November 2002 and December 2003. This involves three different s...
Article
The negative effects of the lack of cooperation in managing shared or transboundary fishing resources may be studied by means of analyses that combine Game Theory with bioeconomic modelling. In this paper we undertake the study of the Ibero-atlantic sardine stock, shared by Spain and Portugal, adapting the basic model of analysis of transboundary r...
Article
The Prestige oil spill may be considered as one of the worst in last years, because of the amount spilled (59,000 tons at the moment) and the wide zone affected: almost all the coastline in Galicia (Spanish region with a very important coastal fishing activity) and some points in the North Spain and in the Southwest France. In this paper, we estima...

The management by means of taxes of a fishery in which the fishing technology of the fleets has different effects on resource is analysed in this paper. This effect can be included in the natural growth of the marine resource function itself. The results show that the tax equilibrium level depends on shadow price, marginal productivity of the effor...

Article
This paper presents an analysis of the effectiveness of the community structural policy in the fisheries sector by comparing the relative level of compliance with objectives (reduction of fleets and economic viability) with the mechanisms that have been implemented (structural funds and allocation of quotas). On the one hand, this analysis shows th...
Article
A bioeconomic model is developed to illustrate the way in which a tax on effort applied to a multi-fleet fishery can obtain socially optimum operating results. The analysis is applied to the European southern hake stock. We demonstrate how including heterogeneous fishermen, working simultaneously in the fishery, will lead to different equilibrium l...
Article
A widespread belief exists as to the low financial profitability of fishing companies, but fishermen continue to invest and provoke problems of over-capitalisation. The aim of this study is to provide information on the financial profitability of the European fleet, to analyse the differences between the different segments and the possible influenc...

Full-text available
The european markets for some products are strongly regulated by production and price instruments. In the fishing case, the mayority of instruments are adopted in cetralized way from experts who can only with difficulty consider the market pecularities for some species at a national, regional or local level in their analyses. Knowledge of these dif...

Full-text available
En la Unión Europea los mercados de algunos productos están fuertemente intervenidos a través de medidas que afectan a la producción y> por tanto, al precio. En el caso de la pesca, la mayor parte de las medidas son adoptadas de forma centralizada y suelen referirse a una especie en su conjunto, sin contemplar las características diferenciadoras ex...
