Xth Annual Conference of the European Association of Fisheries Economists
will be held in The Hague from Tuesday March 31 to Friday April 3.
will be accepted on all issues relating to fisheries management and fisheries
economics. Session topics will be determined on the basis of submitted papers.
The following subjects will be of primary importance:
- Developing options for fishery
management techniques, criteria, etc.
- Economic performance of fishing
fleets: What about the crisis?
- Economics and environmental
issues in fisheries
- Fleet productivity and techno-
- Cooperation with other disciplines:
How to go about multidisciplinary research?
- Capacity and over-capacity:
economic assessment of the driving forces, empirical quantification, etc
order to allow sufficient time for presentations and discussion, some topics
may be organized in parallel sessions.
All contributors who submit a papers which is not accepted for oral presentation
will be given an opportunity to present a poster. A special poster session
will be included in programme. The organizers hold the view that presenting
a poster will be an excellent opportunity for many (PhD) students to discuss
their work in greater detail than a short presentation permits.
LITERATURE AND PROJECT DOCUMENTS
A large number of national and international research projects relating
to fisheries economics has been carried out over the last years. This research
has produced a substantial volume of grey literature. Demonstration tables
will be made available for display of research reports. Researchers wishing
to present copies of their work are invited to indicate so to the organizers.
During the conference an opportunity will be offered to hold separate meeting
on on-going projects, - preparation of international proposals or ad hoc
Two panel discussions will be held. One panel will be on a fisheries management
issue, with representatives from the industry, national/EU administration
and researchers. Second panel will explore the feasibility of multi-disciplinary
cooperation. Potential contribution of economics, as perceived by others,
will be one of the central themes of both discussions.
Abstracts of papers (150 words) should be submitted by January 15, 1998
at the latest. Posters will be accepted till March 1, 1998.
