Incentive structures to encourage the reduction of lost fishing gear

by Thomas Jensen

This project, funded by the Nordic Ministry Council, will make a survey on current systems that encourage the reduction of lost fishing gear within fisheries in the Nordic countries (reward and punishment mechanisms). Selected companies will be interviewed on their view on future incentive structures. An analysis of similar issues in other sectors and an analysis of initiatives in other countries will carried out as well (batteries, bottles etc.). The descriptions, analyses, and recommendations, including the relevant political considerations that can be anticipated, will be reported. EUROFISH is coordinating the project with participants from Norway and Iceland. For more information contact
