This paper describes the commercial fisheries fleet of the Netherlands, including the coastal fisheries and the cutter and trawler fleets. A discussion is presented on the theoretical approach to economic analysis, property rights and the ecological analysis of fisheries. Dutch institutional arrangements, both nationally and within the larger framework of the European Union’s Common Fishery Policy, are also discussed. The implementation of ITQs in the plaice (Pleuronectes platessus) and sole (Solea solea) fisheries, along with the role of Bieshuvel Groups as a co-management tool are also presented. Finally, three interviews with Dutch fisherman are provided, which present their views on both national and European Union management issues.
