Abstract: The fishing laws of the Nordic countries state that the fish stocks are owned by the Society. This implies that the Society has an opportunity to increase economic returns from this ownership, as is the case in the tenure of other non-renewable resources such as oil and natural gas. In this paper, the economic return from fish stocks is analysed in selected fisheries of five Nordic countries. The size of the Society’s return and the allocation between labour, capital and the public authorities are identified. The Societies acquire returns from the fisheries to a different extent. The Society’s return is positive in only three out of five case studies, and the public revenue from the existence of fisheries exceeds expenses in only two cases. On this basis, it is examined how the Society may increase the return through improved fisheries management, as well as reallocate the revenue through user payment and taxation.
