This thesis explores the demographic consequences of the implementation of the ITQ fisheries management in rural Denmark specifically in the case of Thorsminde. The intention is to explain how this distinct form of fisheries management creates incentives for large scale factory fishing, with a concentration of quotas, money and jobs on fewer vessels have accelerated the depopulation of rural Denmark. Paul Piersons theory of path dependence is then used as a theoretical basis for analyzing the incremental development of the fisheries management in the European Union, and later on the nation specific management system ITQ. Then the consequences of this form of management in the city Thorsminde are accentuated through observations of the city and interviews with local agents. Then focus is shifted towards alternate ways of fisheries management and what socioeconomic consequences these alternatives could have on the demographics of a city like Thorsminde.
