Fishery control and regulation compliance: a case for co-management in Swedish commercial fisheries

Håkan Eggert () and Anders Ellegård

Marine Policy, 2003, vol. 27, issue 6, 525-533

Abstract: The results from a survey of Swedish commercial fishers on regulation compliance and attitudes to control and restrictions are reported. According to the responding fishers, 90% of all Swedish catches are reported, in spite of limited control efforts. From an economic perspective we would expect substantially lower levels of compliance. The results also show that the majority of Swedish fishers are in favour of co-management on a regional basis. However, on this and other management issues opinions divert significantly between large vessel operators and small vessel operators, which reveals conflicting interests for such and similar changes in Swedish management of fisheries.
