Abstract or Summary
  • Three related topics have been explored in this thesis. Those three topics deal with the pricing problems both in the market for access rights to fish and in the market for seafood. The purpose of this study is to contribute some insights into the global picture of fishery management and the market for seafood. As the consequence of the 200-mile EEZs claims, many coastal nations and distant water fleets have been looking for cooperative fishing arrangements and the market for access rights is emerging. By using a linear control model, the study has demonstrated that the maximum present value of net revenue derived from the resource is negatively related with the discount rate under the sole owner assumption. This finding provides some help both in analyzing the coastal nations' and distant water fleets' competitive abilities and in examining how prices are determined in the market for access. Most seafood at the retail level is sold to consumers through supermarkets that are multiproduct sellers and have some monopoly power. This study has explored the Redacted for Privacy pricing strategy of a multiproduct monopolist, examined the difference in the comparative statics as between the single and multiproduct monopolist, and provided a conceptual explanation for a phenomenon in the seafood industry: purchase restrictions imposed by seafood processors on fishermen. Tying selling is a specific pricing strategy used by many multiproduct sellers. In the literature on tying sales, one issue that has received little attention is tying sales as a reaction to price controls. This study has demonstrated (a) how a competitively supplied good can be used as a tying good and how it works under price controls, (b) how tying sales arrangements under price controls can be used as a price discrimination tool to increase the monopolist's profits, in addition to be used in evasion of price controls, and (c) how the pure bundling pricing may dominate mixed bundling pricing in most circumstances under price controls.
