Project: Economic Analysis of the NSW Commercial Fisheries reform  (2016)

Client: NSW Department of Primary Industries

Summary: The Department of Primary Industries (NSW) contracted AgEconPlus in association with EconSearch Pty Ltd and Gillespie Economics to undertake an economic analysis of the NSW Commercial Fisheries Reform Package. Reform options have been proposed for five state based fisheries based on linkage of licence holder shares to catch, effort or minimum shareholdings. This study examined the return on investment of the five fisheries; and analysed the impact of the share linkage options on fishing businesses in 15 share classes.
