Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This report describes the catches and economic value of the IJsselmeer fishery sector from 2015 to 2020, and provides insight into the catches per fishing gear and the value of the various fishing rights. Information on the succession situation and fishing company continuity was obtained via interviews with fishermen. Insight was also obtained into the level of interest in the voluntary sale of fishing rights and the costs of this. The IJsselmeer fishery sector total catch value has increased from 3.1 million euro in 2013 to 6.2 million euro in 2019. Most of this value relates to pike perch and eel. The free market value of the total fishery sector amounts to approximately 18 million euro, of which 7.3 million euro is for scale fish fishing rights and 10.6 million euro is for eel fishing rights. There are 39 fishing companies, of which 31 companies depend economically on fishing. No successor is available for approximately a third of the companies.
