- SJFI, Denmark
The Danish Institute of
Agricultural and Fisheries Economics (SJFI) aims to carry out research,
and to give advice on agricultural and fisheries economics, both on national
and international scales. The activities also include economic aspects of
resource and environment management and production of industrial statistics.
SJFI is a research institute under the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and
SJFI have traditionally
concentrated on agricultural research. In 1994 work was extended to the
fisheries sector with the collection and publication of account statistics
for capture fisheries. It was not until 1997 that SJFI expanded into fisheries
economics research with the appointment of Dr. Jørgen Løkkegaard
as Director of the Fisheries Economics and Management Division. Dr. Løkkegaard
has been working for the Ministry since 1980 and is currently involved in
the Concerted Action initiative and the STECF of the EU. In 1998, SJFI further
recruited three research assistants to cover three main categories, namely
bio-economic and management model development (Jesper Levring Andersen),
economic model development for the fisheries sector (Max Nielsen), and analysis
of fisheries policy and management issues (Erik Lindebo).
Through conference attendance
and paper presentations, project collaboration with other institutes (IME/SDU
among others), and the publication of working papers and industry reports,
it is expected that SJFI will rapidly expand their contribution towards
fisheries economics research. It is anticipated that SJFI will further develop
their research activities during the coming years.

- Institute of Agricultural Market
The Institute is one of
the sixteen institutes of the Federal Agricultural Research Centre (FAL)
at Braunschweig-Völkenrode. The Centre itself is part of the research
system, managed by the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry.
The objectives in the
field agricultural and fishery market research relate to the eco-nomic activities
in the factor and product markets of the agricultural and fisheries sectors
of the economy. The research programme of the Institute, therefore, ranges
from description of market performance, market institutions and markets
structures to quantitative supply and demand research and analyses of policy
options and programmes. The scope of research activities includes national,
EU, and world markets at different levels of aggregation.
Within this framework
the research activities include the areas of market sector analyses, costs
and earnings studies and general advisory work for the Ministry. The Institute
has also been involved in a wide range of international consulting activities,
including work in Namibia and Surinam. The Institute has a total staff number
of 28, of which 14 are academic staff.
