This project investigates regulation of the fishing sector in Denmark in an historical context. The area is characterized by incremental development and path dependency, and economic incentives form a basis for regulation. Over time this has lead to the introduction of Individual Transferable Quotas as a market based instrument to assign fishing rights based on available capacity. The transferability of the quotas has in combination with economic incentives and a legislation formulated in general instead of specific terms resulted in an unwanted consolidation of the quotas. Which subsequently has been addressed in a political agreement in 2017. In the project we analyze this agreement.
In conclusion we recommend the introduction of a feasibility and consequence study for individual proposals for policies in the fishing sector. We suggest this in order for the politicians to be presented with consequences of policies that address several political goals.
