Abstract or Summary
  • Theory suggests that fishing effort would be allocated among various fishing grounds such that profit levels would be equal. Homogeneity among fishers as well as perfect information is assumed and profits are opportunistically increased by changing fishing locations. These assumptions have been shown empirically ins some single fisheries where fishers and areas are relatively homogeneous. However, complexity arises when dealing with multispecies and multi-ground fisheries. Biological, economic, and regulatory measures further add to the complexity and complicate determining response by fishers to various factors. This study provides a spatial analysis of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico grouper fishery and lays some grounds for future studies on fleet dynamics, location choice, and potential impacts to commercial Gulf of Mexico grouper fishermen behavior under varying economic and regulatory conditions. The study is timely in that red grouper, one of the primary species targeted by commercial fishermen, has recently been declared as overfished and alternative regulations are currently be evaluated to rebuild the stock.
