Abstract or Summary
  • In discussing property rights, efficiency and fisheries management economic literature often refers to a fishery with a hypothetical single owner, comparing it to fisheries with more fragmented ownership. Through a range of effort reductions, since the near collapse of the fishery in the early 1980s, the Exmouth Gulf Prawn fishery in Western Australia has emerged with a single owner. The fishery's economic, social and environmental performance was recently rated by a panel of experts at 9.8 out of 10. In the presentation the history and context in which a single operator emerged is outlined. Practical constraints and issues for a single owner are discussed in the context of the history of the fishery, corporate strategy and market structure. Comparison is also made with other prawn fisheries in Australia which have a more diverse ownership base.
