CHARACTERISTICS OF EU SMALL SCALE FLEET


The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative analysis of small-scale fisheries (SSF) in Europe. In particular, the approach is focused on describing and discussing SSF at NUTS-2 and Member State (MS) levels so as to generate a systematization of the diversity within SSF, to develop a typology of SSF which would enable the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) to properly manage SSF. To this aim, the study examines:

  • Clusters of small-scale fisheries that exist in terms of key characteristics such as fishing gear, vessel construction material and age, and vessel size;
  • The role of small-scale fisheries in terms of their economic and social contribution to regional economy; and
  • The potential justification for, and impacts of, any special treatment for small-scale fisheries under a reformed CFP after 2013.
