    Science, subsidies and the politics of the pulse trawl ban in the European Union

    Pulse trawls - electric fishing - subsidies - advocacy science
    The decision to ban the pulse trawl by the European Parliament in early 2019 was influenced by public debate over its scientific and political legitimacy. In their 2019 paper in Marine Policy, Le Manach et al. continued this debate by making three claims. First, that the pulse trawl has substantial negative social and environmental impacts. Second, that it received ‘illegal’ subsidies from the European Union amounting to €20.8 million. And third, that the Dutch government and industry did not provide adequate transparency in the allocation of subsidies. These claims are misleading and, in some instances, demonstrably false: the ongoing science on the effects of the pulse trawl shows relatively positive impacts; following the conventional definitions of “harmful” and “fisheries subsidies” in the economic literature, harmful subsidies provided to pulse trawling only amount to €0.3 million, or less than 2% of Le Manach et al.‘s estimate; and there is no evidence of intentional non-disclosure of information related to the distribution of subsidies by the Dutch government. Finally, we reflect on the consequences of the inaccuracies presented by Le Manach et al. in the governance of fishing gear innovation and their wider effect on the legitimacy of advocacy-based science.

    Implementing the Landing Obligation. An Analysis of the Gap Between Fishers and Policy Makers in the Netherlands
    Kraan, Marloes ; Verweij, Marieke - \ 2020
    In: Collaborative Research in Fisheries / Holm, P., Hadjimichael, M., Linke, S., Mackinson, S., Springer (MARE Publication Series ) - ISBN 9783030267834 - p. 231 - 248.
    perceptions - landing obligation - discards - trust - collaborative research
    The introduction of the landing obligation is a radical change of the European fisheries policy that has widened the gap between fishers and policy officers in the Netherlands. Especially the mixed demersal trawl fisheries have to adjust to this new measure, which requires a concerted effort between ministry, fleet and research institutions. This chapter describes the implementation process of the landing obligation in the Netherlands (between 2013–2015) and how it has been met with strong opposition by Dutch fishers. This chapter argues that such opposition stems not only from interests, but also from strongly held perceptions about the (ecological) consequences of the measure, as was clear from observing meetings and interviewing key actors. Although several meetings had been organised by the ministry to discuss the landing obligation with fishers, perception differences were not discussed explicitly. Discussions rather seemed to be parallel monologues where parties failed to meet a shared understanding. This situation jeopardises real cooperation in the preparation for full implementation of the landing obligation. The chapter ends with a discussion on possible ways to bridge the gap between fishers and policy officers
    Integrating collaborative research in marine science: Recommendations from an evaluation of evolving science‐industry partnerships in Dutch demersal fisheries
    Steins, Nathalie A. ; Kraan, Marloes L. ; Reijden, Karin J. van der; Quirijns, Floor J. ; Broekhoven, Wouter ; Poos, Jan Jaap - \ 2020

    collaborative research - fishers' knowledge research - knowledge co-creation - marine resource management - marine science - Stakeholder participation
    The increasingly complex nature of marine resource management calls for stronger stakeholder participation in advancing knowledge and developing management approaches. Studies on stakeholder involvement in marine resource management have primarily focussed on participation in resource use negotiation and not on participation in science. Using fishers' knowledge research frameworks, we evaluate over 15 years of science-industry research collaboration (SIRC) in Dutch demersal fisheries. Four key lessons emerge: (a) Capacity building in SIRC works multiple ways and triggers shifts in the fishers' knowledge research spectrum; (b) Successful SIRC depends on acceptance of industry collected data for scientific advice, which necessitates close involvement of end-users from the outset to provide feedback and obtain
    support; (c) (Fisher) participation raises often-overlooked equity questions and may result in selection bias; and (d) The governance context strongly influences structure of SIRC and integration of SIRC knowledge. To ensure a sustainable, continuous process of stakeholder participation and use of their knowledge in marine resources research, collaborative research should be embedded in the institutional frameworks for science and management. It demands continuous maintenance of the relationship between scientists and stakeholders in the context of management developments, calls for reflection about selection and equity considerations, and requires continuous attention for communication with all parties involved at different levels. The lessons learnt in science-industry research collaboration in fisheries are also relevant for the wider field of marine science, where stakeholder participation is necessary but not yet common.

    Naar aanleiding van het rapport ‘Wind op zee’ (Mol et al. 2019) is de vraag gesteld of en hoe de huidige ontwikkelingen, waar de visserijsector mee te maken heeft (Brexit, aanlandplicht en het intrekken van de pulsontheffingen), invloed hebben op de economische waarde voor de visserij in de windparkgebieden en hoe deze ontwikkelingen elkaar beïnvloeden. In deze notitie worden deze interacties kwalitatief omschreven. Daarnaast worden aanbevelingen gedaan om tot een kwantitatieve berekening van de economische gevolgen te komen door middel van het bepalen van scenario’s en het bouwen van een model.

    Muddying the waters of the landing obligation: how Multi-level governance structures can obscure policy implementation

    The 2013 reform of the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) included an increased drive for regionalisation of the policy implementation and the introduction of the Landing Obligation (LO). The process of implementing the LO takes place at multiple levels of governance within the EU. We use the case of the implementation of the LO in the Netherlands, where policymakers and the fishing industry cooperate towards a workable policy implementation. In this paper, we argue that the EU’s complex and unconsolidated implementation structure hampers a fair and clear implementation process. Three main causes can be distinguished: first, a lack of a shared understanding of the goal of the Landing Obligation within and between the different governance levels that are involved in the implementation process. Second, no meaningful discussions are taking place between concurrent resource users, resource managers and supporters of the LO regarding the need and usefulness of the measure, as there is no arena in the governance system for them to meet. With the introduction of the Regional Advisory Councils in the 2002 CFP reform, a platform for discussion between fishers and NGOs was created, but this platform has only an advisory role and does not include the Member States. Third, the relationship between different decision-making bodies is unclear, as is the manner in which stakeholder input will be included in decision-making about implementing the LO. The result of this implementation process has been a diluted policy where the goal, its execution and its effectiveness remain unclear.
