New edition of Økonomisk fiskeriforskning
The issue marks the end of the five-year long research programme ‘Increased profitability in the cod sector,’ which aimed to provide knowledge on why the cod sector has had poor profitability over time.
The research programme started in 2011 and is funded by the Fishery and Aquaculture Industry Research Fund.
Partners are Aalborg University in Denmark, the Matis research institute from Iceland, Norway’s Fisheries University College in Tromsø and Nofima.
A key objective of the programme has been to develop a strong social sciences community with unique expertise on how national public regulation of catches and production from wild stocks affects the industry’s international competitive ability, structure and profitability.
The intention of this special edition has been to gather these academic contributions and combine them in a structured manner.
All of the contributions have previously been published in different academic journals following thorough peer review.
The special edition is titled Mål, virkemiddel og effekt [Goals, instruments and effect].
