Capteurs de quotas. La pêche européenne entre territoires et marché

Abstract : [Quota hoppers. European fisheries between territory and market] European fishermen still have a representation of their activity which is predominantly linked to national and local communities.

From the eighties onwards, the territorial logic has nevertheless been challenged by free market rules, which have in particular enabled shipowners from Spain and the Netherlands to run vessels and use national catch quotas of other EU countries (France and the UK) - a practice known among British fishermen as quota hopping. This practice illustrates the contradictions within the EU between the territorial legacy of an economic activity and a process of deterritorialization induced by the liberal market norm. Quota hoppers are increasingly able to bypass states in using the institutional resources offered by the EU
