How can we manage a so-called "renewable" natural resource such as a fishery when we don't know how renewable it really is? James A. Crutchfield and Arnold Zellner developed a dynamic and highly successful economic approach to this problem, drawing on extensive data from the Pacific halibut industry. Although the U.S. Department of the Interior published a report about their findings in 1962, it had very limited distribution and is now long out of print. This book presents a complete reprint of Crutchfield and Zellner's pioneering study, together with a new introduction by the authors and four new papers by other scholars. These new studies cover the history of the Pacific halibut industry as well as the general and specific contributions of the original work—such as price-oriented conservation policy—to the fields of resource economics and management. The resulting volume integrates theory and practice in a clear, well-contextualized case study that will be important not just for environmental and resource economists, but also for leaders of industries dependent on any natural resource.

This textbook provides the reader with a foundation in policy development and analysis and describes how policy, including legal mechanisms, is applied to marine environments around the world. It offers a systematic treatment of all aspects of marine policy, including environmental protection, fisheries, transportation, energy, mining and climate change. It starts with a biophysical overview of the structure and function of the marine environment with a particular emphasis on the challenges and opportunities of managing the marine environment. An overview of the creation and function of international law is then provided with a focus on international marine law. It explores the geographic and jurisdictional dimensions of marine policy, as well the current and anticipated challenges facing marine systems, including climate change-related impacts and resource over-exploitation. The book should appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate students and form a core part of the curriculum for marine affairs, science and policy courses. It will also provide supplementary reading for students taking a course in the law of the oceans, but is not aimed at legal specialists.

This textbook has two main objectives. Firstly, it outlines the problems associated with the management and conservation of marine living resources, with particular attention given to the twin concepts of economic value and sustainability. It demonstrates the contribution that economics can make to understanding these problems as well as helping to frame policies to mitigate them. Secondly, it looks in detail at the key methods that may be used to collect and analyse socio-economic data, oriented towards the information needs of decision makers and stakeholders involved in fisheries management. Together, these two objectives address the question: how does society make the best use of its marine living resources?

In 1977, Lee Anderson published the first edition of The Economics of Fisheries Management. This second edition was first published in 1986. The first edition was remarkably successful in that it remained unchallenged as the most important reference work in the realm of fisheries management, at least from an economic perspective. The second edition underwent considerable revision and enlargement. The book provides a very readable introduction to the economics of fisheries management, beginning with basic microeconomic principles, and then applying those principles to a very wide array of fisheries problems, pushing back frontiers in some advanced areas, while relying on the published literature in others. The discussion begins with an analysis of the basic open access problem and shows why, in the absence of property rights, there is a strong tendency for fish stocks to be over-exploited and for fishing fleets to be too large. After presenting the argument in terms of several different models, each allowing a slightly different look at the problem, the economic and biological effects of various types of management techniques are discussed. .." students, researchers and practitioners will all find this second edition to be very good reading and an invaluable reference volume." Marine Resource Economics ." an excellent piece of work, that is consistent with the high standards Dr. Anderson has established in his other efforts." J. Fisheries Research Board of Canada Lee G. Anderson earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Washington in 1970. He is Professor of Economics and Marine Studies at the University of Delaware and is currently the Director of the Marine Policy Program in the College of Marine Studies. He has written or edited six books and over sixty scientific papers on fisheries economics and the economics of fisheries management. He is a past member of the Executive Board of the Law of the Sea Institute past member and chairman of the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and past Board Member and President of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade. He has acted in an advisory capacity to National Marine Fisheries Service, and other Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, the U.S. Department of State, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, U.S. General Accounting Office, the National Academy of Sciences, the World Bank, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, the European Union, the Governments of New Zealand, Australia, Oman, Morocco, and Chile with respect to fisheries management and development. In 1993 he was awarded the Rosential Award for Contribution to Ocean Science for his theoretical and applied work on individual transferable quotas. His current work deals with simulation models, design and implementation of ITQ programs, the economics of fishing in time and space, and marine reserves.

This title was first published in 2002: This important collection of international research on fisheries economics offers a comprehensive source of contemporary research on key topics in the field, as well as presenting the history of how the economic theory of fisheries exploitation has developed. Bringing into focus a wide range of inquiry, this volume concentrates most particularly on the traditional economic problem of optimal resource allocation. Individual papers examine fundamental issues including, the lack of efficiency of open access and the specification of exactly what dynamic efficiency entails. Fisheries Economics is an invaluable research reference collection for the libraries of academic and other professional economists, as well as an indispensable resource for those studying across the fields of natural resources, fisheries economics and particularly fisheries management.
