There is likely waste of fuel and fish quality in the fishing fleet operation. This report analyzes whether and how the institutional framework, notably regulations concerning vessel design, ITQs and fuel tax regime, affect operating patterns, raw material quality and fuel consumption in selected segments of the Norwegian fishing fleet. Methodologically, the analysis focuses on how new vessels are designed, their pattern of operation and how they perform concerning raw material quality and fuel consumption. The proposed quota flexibility regulations – quota exchange through a dedicated market – is also assessed with respect to the potential impact on fuel consumption.
