Abstract

A buy-back system for the buy-back of under performing salmon authorisations is suggested as the most cost effective method of reducing the number of salmon fishing units. It could be of benefit to commercial salmon fishermen and could be achieved at relatively modest cost. The alternative of implementing a buy-back system of interest to all salmon authorisation holders could be extraordinary expensive as salmon fishermen place a high value on lifestyle.
