This research investigates the ex-vessel price flexibility of U.S. Pacific
sardine landings using a price response analytical framework. Under
perfectly competitive market conditions, we would expect to observe an
inverse relationship between the average price and the aggregate quantity
supplied. However, affiliations between U.S. Pacific sardine harvesters and
While right-based managements have often been encouraged as effective
management tools, few studies presented an empirical analysis on the
effects of those systems. This paper focuses on a special form of Territorial
Use Rights Fisheries called an income pooling system, and examines the
effects of the system empirically. Income pooling...
The aim of this work is to estimate the supply elasticity of the fish regarding the variationsin one of the
most important running costs (fuel cost) for the Galician fleet in the Celtic Sea. The Spanish fleet involved
in the Celtic Sea fishing grounds, also known as the _300 fleet_,...
Substitution and elasticity give about the history of supply and the demand structure for fish and seafood. It is also relevant to the detection of change in a particular exploited marine ecosystem. The purpose of this paper is to test if market elasticity of substitution of seafood categories can further...
The objective of this research is twofold. First, this study uses a
cointegration model to investigate possible potential long-run pricing
relationships among the major landings of the Hawaii tuna longline fishery
(bigeye, yellowfin, skipjack, and albacore tuna). This analysis will
determine to what extent changes in the price of one...
This study couples landings, import data and other factors in a statistical framework to explore the determinants of bottomfish pricing in Hawai'i - in particular, for seven deep water species in the snapper
and grouper complex - using monthly data from 1996 to 2006. This research concludes that bottomfish pricing...
The role of aquaculture industry is becoming more prominent in order to
supplement marine capture in meeting the food need of the growing
population. In an attempt to minimize depletion of marine fisheries only
traditional vessels are allowed to fish along the coastal area while bigger
vessels are regulated to...
The pigeon guillemot (Cepphus columba) population in Prince William
Sound has failed to recover from declines that occurred both before and after the
Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS). Post-spill studies of pigeon guillemot breeding
biology have identified three potential factors limiting recovery: (1) predation on
eggs and nestlings; (2) declines...
