Abstract: Many marine fish resources are overexploited and the total world production of wild caught fish has declined a little since the peak in the mid-1990s. This book analyses the economic and biological forces and consequences of fish exploitation where there is open access to the resource. What’s more, effective methods to mitigate economic and biological declines, as well as ecosystem effects, are rigorously analysed, but without going beyond the mathematical level of most high school graduates. The analytic models include the basic elements of fish population dynamics and fishing vessel behaviour, with focus on effective management instruments to create economic surplus and welfare without jeopardising ecosystem health. This includes resource taxes, fish quotas, gear and vessel restrictions and marine protected areas. This book should be of value to both undergraduate and graduate students in economics as well as across inter- and multi-disciplinary fisheries programs.
