Abstract or Summary
  • Quota, a computer-based simulation game, originated as an experimental game for testing alternative multi-resource management regimes or systems. Highly flexible, it allows specification for a standard common-property, open-access fishery with user-specified bio-economic fishery growth model and multiple sized producers with individual harvest and cost functions. In addition to demonstrating overfishing under open-access, various forms of Property Rights Systems can be implemented, including the setting of an overall Total Allowable Catch (TAC) and further allocation of the TAC to individual producers -- Individual Quota Rights (IQR) -- that may be based on historical catch during initial periods of Open Access fishing or equal shares or shares determined by bargaining amongst the players (producers). Subsequent trading of IQRs is also implemented using a highly developed computerized trading game. Recent use of the game have been as an educational tool in university classes on resource economics and in the field at meetings of Regional Fishing Management Organizations that govern the major tuna fisheries around the world.
