7 GOOD FISHERIES ECONOMICS = TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics? FISHING EXTERNALITIES

8 Socio-economic examples Territorial equilibrium The impact of fisheries in the social and economic structures of costal communities Environmental examples Discards and unwanted captures Climate change Impacts in the sea bottom Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics?

9 Externalities are important because: Limit the use of market mechanisms: The market by itself does not lead us to the most efficient use of resources. Delinks the connection between individual and public efficiency. Alternative fishing methods and practices do have different types of externalities. Sustainable SSFs are very good dealing with externalities! Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics?

10 Taking specific measures to support SSF is a way to establish a level field with the fleet segments with poorer externalities records CFP should try to decrease bad externalities and potentiate good ones in all the fleet and all the cases Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics?

11 1.Introduction 2.Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics? 3.Proposals 4.Conclusions

12 Low environmental impact Low levels of discards Low CO 2 emissions High level of good quality of employments Compliance with legislation 1. Introduce environmental and social criteria in the access to resources management

13 1.Continuous and adaptative mechanism to decrease externalities and foster innovation 2.It is useful for all kind of fleets (inter and intra-fleet) and it will benefit specially SSF 3.It introduces coherence between use of natural resources and financial mechanisms 1. Introduce environmental and social criteria in the access to resources management

14 1.Introduce them in the basic regulation as a general rule for multiannual plans 2.Introduce them in the fishing opportunities allocation criteria. Increase 5% reserve progressively + distribute access considering criteria 3.Link financial instruments to those criteria 1. Introduce environmental and social criteria in the access to resources management

15 1.Fix an implementation timetable 2.Define interim procedures 3.Introduce of co-management committees 4.Link objectives and finance 2. Ensure well designed and stronger multiannual plans

16 1.Include precautionary principle and ecosystem approach in SFAs 2.Ensure that cost of access to the fisheries resources SFAs are covered by the industry 3. Ensure exclusivity clause 4. Promote participation of SSF in the negotiation process 3. There are SSF far from the EU, so…

17 1.Introduction 2.Why SSF are important in good fisheries economics? 3.Proposals 4.Conclusions
