EASME wishes to enter into a service contract for a study of ownership structure of all fishing vessels' means of production, licences, and exclusive rights (quotas) in the catching sector of the following 9 EU Member States: 1) Belgium; 2) Denmark; 3) France; 4) Germany; 5) Ireland; 6) Netherlands; 7) Spain; 8) Sweden; 9) United Kingdom.

The study will also document the recent evolution of this structure, assess its impact on the economic performance of the respective fleet segments and, on this basis, anticipate possible future prospects for these segments, as well as for rights-based management systems. The outcomes of this study will be used in future evaluations and impact assessments.

Specific objectives include:
a) documenting the ultimate ownership of fishing vessels, quota and quota-holding firms;
b) defining the nationality of the ultimate owners of the firms involved in the fishing sector;
c) understanding the concentration of vessels, quotas and fishing rights at Member State level.
