Fish and Trips in the Baltic Sea - Prices, Management and Labor Supply

Hammarlund, Cecilia LU (2015) In Lund Economic Studies 185.
Abstract
The essay discusses different aspects of the market for fish from the Baltic sea. The first chapter introduces the subject and discusses how the essay relates to fishery economics and gives a background of the development of the fisheries in the Baltic Sea.



Prices of different attributes of Baltic cod is the topic of the second chapter. The results show that larger sized and better quality cod have higher prices and that these prices have increased over time. The chapter also shows that quantities have some effect on prices.

The essay discusses different aspects of the market for fish from the Baltic sea. The first chapter introduces the subject and discusses how the essay relates to fishery economics and gives a background of the development of the fisheries in the Baltic Sea.



Prices of different attributes of Baltic cod is the topic of the second chapter. The results show that larger sized and better quality cod have higher prices and that these prices have increased over time. The chapter also shows that quantities have some effect on prices.



The third chapter is about the effects on bargaining power when the management system was changed in the Swedish Baltic cod fishery in 2011. The results show that ex-vessel prices have increased due to increased bargaining power of fishers after the reform.



The fourth chapter discusses a small-scale herring fishery in the western Baltic sea that was exempted from a system of tradable fishing concessions (TFC-system). The main conclusion is that it is important to build other institutions dealing with the problem of access to quota when exempting a fishery from a TFC-system.



Finally, the fifth chapter investigates short run labor supply and the occurrence of revenue targets in the Swedish Baltic cod trawler fishery. The results suggest that there is not much support for fishermen aiming for revenue targets in this fishery. (Less)
