The ex-vessel coho salmon market has been paid scant attention
in the study of the salmon resources. This study is an attempt to
advance an understanding of the variations of ex-vessel prices and
landings during the coho season as well as between the various coastal
ports where the fish is...
Despite potential advantages of rights-based management over competitive fisheries, there has been significant political resistance to rights-based management from many fishermen, which has slowed the
adoption of rights-based management. This paper explores the concept of voluntary transitions to rights-based
management, under which fishermen may choose between an allocated fishery (with...
Exceptional data are available for the study of the salmon runs of the Columbia River in 1938. Detailed figures on catch were supplied by Oregon and Washington in such form that they could readily be combined with the counts at Bonneville Dam to provide a basis for estimating the escapement....
Historic changes that have taken place on Oregon's commercial
salmon fisheries are described in terms of their effects on the efficiency
of fishermen. This historical analysis provides a background
for comparative efficiency studies of Columbia River gillnetters and
ocean trollers with the objective of determining which harvester
group was more...
The formulation of demand functions for aquatic products has been prevalently practiced worldwide, but
still represents a rather new phenomenon in the area of applied economics in Vietnam. This paper focuses
on estimates of demand functions for Norwegian salmon products. Log-linear functions are used to construct the model. The major...
