Abstract or Summary
  • The basic hypothesis underlying this paper is that the amount of fishing that a fisher undertakes over a year is not determined solely by circumstances which are exogenous to the fisher, such as weather conditions and resource availability, but are the subject of individual choice. As such, the decision can be analyzed using the usual apparatus that economists use to model choice decisions at the margin, that is, that the decision to fish for an additional week is governed by a comparison of the marginal benefits and marginal costs of doing so. Modifications in these marginal benefits and costs, through institutional changes or otherwise, can alter the balance between the two, and so lead to a change in the decision as to how long in the year to pursue the fishing activity.
