The effects of buy-back programs in the British Columbia Salmon Fishery: WORKING PAPER

This record describes, and links to a working paper published through the Economics and Environment Network at The Australian National University in Canberra. The paper was prepared for the International Workshop on Fishing Vessel and License Buy-Back Programs, held at the University of California between March 22nd-24th, 2004.


Policy makers have implemented five distinct buybacks of either vessels or salmon licenses over the past three decades in the British Columbia (BC) salmon fishery. The earliest buyback was one of the first of its kind in any fishery and the most recent buyback is one of the largest ever in terms of reducing vessel numbers and the funds used. This paper reviews the circumstances under which these buybacks were conducted with an emphasis on their impact on reducing fishing capacity and effort. The focus is on the two most recent buybacks that took place in 1996 and 1998-2000, what has been learned and what they have achieved.
