Abstract or Summary
  • Commercial fishing is generally hazardous, but some types of commercial fishing are more dangerous than other types. Since much of the fishing industry is composed of small family-owned businesses, commercial fishermen have to rely on the private health insurance markets, health insurance offered through a landside job, spouses’ plans, social insurance, or forgo coverage altogether. If health insurance coverage impacts workplace choices, then fishermen working in more dangerous environs and using more dangerous gear should be more likely to make sure they are covered. What does the presence and source of health coverage tell us about commercial fishermen and fishing activity? I review landings and survey data from North Carolina in the years immediately preceding the passage of the 2010 Affordable Health Care Act (ACA). If health care coverage affects fishing activity, then the recent increase in health coverage via the ACA may lead to changes in fishing behavior as well as increase the productivity of the commercial fleets.
