Abstract or Summary
  • This paper discusses the potential application of implicit discount rates (IDR) derived from Individual Transferable Quota (ITQ) trading data as indicators of fishery bio-economic health. The theoretical background is discussed, and in the context of one New Zealand ITQ fishery we analyze the behavior of IDR over ten years of Total Allowable Catches (TACs). We find evidence of convergence of IDR toward the cost of capital over time and a statistically significant inverse relationship between IDR and stock biomass estimates. Further, there is evidence based in the statistical properties of time series of IDR and monthly stock biomass observations of a causal relationship flowing from biomass to IDR. These findings motivate discussion of the role of IDR as an observable condition in fisheries recovery. We note the potential to monitor and compare the progress of fishery recovery using the IDR statistic or derivatives that reflect its time path to long run values associated with the stock management goal. We argue that IDR provide the opportunity to aggregate fishers’ tacit knowledge with models of bio-economic optima in understanding the recovery process.
