Summary

This study investigates aspects concerning two quota incentive schemes in Norway. To promote off-season fishing and supply of fresh fish to the markets and processing industry, vessels are granted a bonus quota for the most valuable species, cod. Another scheme is applied to promote capture-based aquaculture of cod, where live cod landings are granted a rebate when deducted from the vessel quota. Each ton of cod stored alive counts as half a ton against the quota. The scheme is intended to have a limited duration and can be considered a support for innovative use of the cod resource.
