This paper presents a method for evaluation of the economic cost of reducing the emissions from a fleet operating in the aquaculture industry. The method accounts for the fact that different fleet compositions perform differently in a given operating environment. A simulation model tests the fleets, returning the achieved mission coverage, total operating cost and emissions. The cost and emissions for each fleet are adjusted for coverage before their relations are analyzed using regression on the Pareto frontier. A case study is performed, estimating the cost of 5%, 10%, 20%, 50% and 100% reductions in CO2-emissions from well boat operations.
