The Norwegian industrial trawl fishery in the North Sea : a study on how the total catch in 1975 could have been increased without exceeding the quotas of cod, haddock and whiting
MetadataShow full item record
Linear programming is used to demonstrate a way to maximise the total catch in a mixed fishery. Constraints are set by quotas, as well as requirements that the total catch should not be too unevenly distributed between areas and throughout the season. A practical application of this technique in fisheries management depends on a satisfactory prediction of the ratio of the quota-regulated species in the total catch before the season starts.
