Analysis of the Balance between the Fishing Fleet Capacity and the Fishing Opportunities in the Romanian Black Sea Sector in 2015
AbstractThe common fisheries policy of the European Council decided, after detailed analysis, that measures to manage fishing capacity in a balanced manner with fishing opportunities should be imposed and called on each Member State to initiate early action to adjust the fishing capacity of their fleets to their fishing opportunities [Article 22 of Regulation (EU) No. 1380 / 2013].
In this context, the research work was conducted to assess the balance / imbalance existing between the capacity of the coastal fishing fleet on the Romanian Black Sea coast and the fishing opportunities at the level of each fleet segment.
To achieve this, it was necessary to evaluate each fleet segment and fishing technique, the state of fish stocks and mollusks stocks that have been overexploited, the level of unprofitable fleet segments (inactive) or too little used (number small fishing days), the level of economic indicators (economic performance). Analyzing and interpreting all of the above-mentioned aspects has allowed the assessment of the existing balances / imbalances between the fleet segments and the fish / mollusk stocks on which it depends.
