Fishing power increases from technological development in the Faroe Islands longline fishery
Abstract:During an effort-regulated period from 1996 to 2002, unregistered annual increases of 0.3% of hooks fished per day were demonstrated for the Faroe Islands longline fishery. However, annual increases were higher (1.5%) during a preceding total allowable catch regulated period, thereby invalidating an expectation of the 1996 shift in regulations (output to input control) to have induced increases in the number of hooks set per day. Underlying this result is a substantial increase in total yearly effort (fishing days) and a shift in targeting behaviour from secondary to primary (high value) target species in response to the transition from output to input control. Interview data on technology were combined with logbook data and analysed with generalized linear modelling to demonstrate haddock (

- Published continuously since 1901 (under various titles), this monthly journal is the primary publishing vehicle for the multidisciplinary field of aquatic sciences. It publishes perspectives (syntheses, critiques, and re-evaluations), discussions (comments and replies), articles, and rapid communications, relating to current research on cells, organisms, populations, ecosystems, or processes that affect aquatic systems. The journal seeks to amplify, modify, question, or redirect accumulated knowledge in the field of fisheries and aquatic science. Occasional supplements are dedicated to single topics or to proceedings of international symposia.
