Where Are the Fish Landed? An Analysis of Landing Plants in Norway

Where Are the Fish Landed? An Analysis of Landing Plants in Norway <p>ABSTRACT:</p><p>A vast literature in fisheries economics focuses on drivers of fishers&apos; behavior with limited attention given to what happens once the fish are landed. This often strongly contrasts with a main policy focus on coastal communities, with fisheries management as an additional instrument in supporting livelihoods. This study shows that the number of Norwegian landing plants has been reduced in recent decades, and that quantity landed, annual plant operation time, and attracting smaller vessels decrease the probability of exit. Interestingly, plants in communities with additional landing locations have lower probabilities of exit, pointing to an industry cluster effect. <i>(JEL Q22)</i></p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Land Economics University of Wisconsin Press
