Abstract or Summary
  • This paper deals with the economic impact of an aquatic invasive alien species on a coastal shellfish fishery. A slipper-limpet (Crepidula fornicata ) was accidentally imported some decades ago, has established and is spreading in the bay of Saint-Brieuc (France). This exotic species is acting as a space competitor for common scallop (Pecten maximus) harvested by fishers, and then is threatening the long term sustainability of the scallop fishery. Facing this situation, biological invasion is addressed by a control program. The paper presents a bioeconomic model analyzing the invasive process, the social cost of invasion for the scallop fishery and the benefits resulting from a control program. Based on provisional data, a numerical simulation of the invasion of the common scallop fishery of the Bay of Saint-Brieuc (France) is proposed as an illustration, and sensitivity tests are presented.
