Economics and the Fisheries Management Development Process

  • Lee G. Anderson
Part of the Springer Series on Environmental Management book series (SSEM)

Abstract

Unregulated exploitation of fish stocks can potentially lead to the economically wasteful use of the stocks and the inputs used to exploit them. Therefore regulation to change the size, composition, and timing of landings can be justified on economic grounds if such regulation can prevent or reduce such wastes at a cost that is less than the resultant savings. To guarantee that maximum savings are achieved, the types of regulation used must encourage efficiency in effort production so that the proper amount of catch can be achieved at the lowest possible cost.
