Tromsø: Nofima AS (tidligere Fiskeriforskning) 2000 (ISBN 82-7251-452-4) 29, p. Nofima rapportserie (13/2000)
This Report is an update of earlier Report No. 7/1998: “Governmental Transfers to the Norwegian Fishing Industry: 1977-1996”, which was the Norwegian contribution to the OECD’s Fishery Committee, answering their Questionnaire AGR/FI (97) 11. In this publication, the emphasis is on the later years, 1995-99, and the form is not so strict. The Report first examines the industry’s income potential during the latter decades, and is narrowed to concern the fish-harvesting sector only. Then the subsidies are presented, including the production tax on fish, and expenditures for general services to the industry. The last section addresses various capacity factors for the fishing fleet.
