Abstract or Summary
  • Many of the tangible benefits of catch share programs (e.g., reducing overcapacity) are dependent on the trading of shares. Additional trading-related questions (such as whether landings will change port or be concentrated geographically) are also important to the overall evaluation of a fishery, but are often asked only during post-implementation program reviews. Using both quota trading data and survey data on information sharing among Gulf of Mexico IFQ fishers, this research analyzes the overlap between fisher information sharing networks and quota trading networks to measure the extent to which quota trading is accomplished through social networks. Comparing these two networks will provide information on the role of acquaintanceships in quota trading markets and the value of using fisher survey data on information sharing to a gain a better understanding of trading behavior. The insights of this analysis could provide policy makers with a means of estimating how quota will flow through a fishery prior to implementation of a catch share program by surveying potential participants (commercial, for-hire, and/or recreational) about their information sharing networks. These insights would allow policy makers to predict possible issues related to catch share management in a fishery prior to implementation and design the management program in response to these potential issues.
