Consumer Heterogeneity and Trade in Shared Renewable Resource Trading

  • Takeshi Ogawa


Shared or common renewable resources are becoming to be more important in recent days. On the one hand, Pacific bluefin tuna tends to be disappearing, so it is included in Red List. On the other, Atlantic bluefin tuna is recovering after critical endangered situation because of ICCAT’s agreements. Especially in Japan, transboundary renewable resources (like crabs between Japan and Russia and so on) have also focused on because of some border decision problems.
