Abstract or Summary
  • Employing an experimental approach, we examine whether the efficiency of fishery management can be achieved under Individual Transferable Quotas regimes. We analyze the situation in which subjects can choose one from two vessel types: a large-scale or a small-scale. The fixed cost for the large-scale is higher than that for the small-scale, whereas the variable cost for the large-scale is lower. We find that the average trading price converges to the theoretical equilibrium price. We also find that vessels are chosen rationally, in the sense that the higher is the trading prices in the past, the less incentive fishers have to invest in large-scale vessels. Moreover, quota prices in the first period could influence both the quota prices in the ensuing periods.
