Denmark

In 2005 a decision was taken on a major reform of the national regulation of demersal fisheries. The reform has led to more individual fisheries management as well as a higher degree of ownership of fishing rights for the individual fisherman. The reform follows similar regulation reforms for pelagic and industrial fisheries. As a consequence the number of commercially active vessels in the Danish fleet fell substantially in the period 2005-2007.
