Abstract or Summary
  • The eastern Georges Bank haddock resource is shared and managed by the U.S. and Canada through a transboundary resource sharing agreement. This agreement includes an annual process for joint stock assessment, setting of a TAC, and harvest shares for each country. The resource sharing agreement provides a mechanism for establishing bilateral action by both countries, but covers only part of the total haddock stock on Georges Bank. The resource sharing agreement does not apply to non-Georges Bank haddock stocks in the U.S. and Canada. Haddock is an important source of income for U.S. and Canadian fishermen and is a commodity that is traded between the two countries. Thus, management decisions taken under the transboundary sharing agreement have implications for domestic markets in the U.S. and Canada and through trade links between the two countries. This paper explores the implications of pursuing different harvest strategies between the U.S. and Canada within an institutional setting that requires bilateral control over a portion of potential haddock supplies, yet provides opportunities to take unilateral action that could affect international trade and prices received by domestic fishermen in both countries.
