Fisheries Economics & Policy: Maximum Economic Yield

This video is a part of Conservation Strategy Fund's collection of environmental economic lessons and was made possible thanks to the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation. This series is for individuals who want to learn - or review - the basic economics of conservation. This video covers maximum economic yield in fishing and fishing quotas. We'll compare growth rates and fish populations and look at where on the growth curve the population reaches sustainability. We'll also introduce the concepts of fishing effort, economic rent and maximum sustainable yields.

Fisheries Stock Assessment Modelling Video 10 - Opening the Black Box

Fisheries Stock Assessment Modelling Video 12 - Fisheries Economics

Ensuring Australian fisheries are not only environmentally sustainable but also financially sustainable is critical to maintaining a long term industry. In this video we overview some basics about fisheries economics and how setting a maximum economic yield for a fishery not only means higher profits for fishers but also, more sustainable fish stocks.

New methods for estimating the status of data-poor fisheries

Speaker: Dr. Rainer Froese
Senior Scientist, GEOMAR
Helmholtz-Centre for Ocean Research

March 9, 2018

New legislation around the world requires stock assessments not only for the one-quarter of large and valuable fisheries, but also for the three quarters of other commercially exploited marine species. This has revived an interest in less data demanding methods, such as stock reduction analysis (SRA), where the sustainability of catches are analyzed before the background of the productivity of the respective species, and rough estimates of the status of the stocks. The talk will present one such method called CMSY, which has recently been applied to all European stocks with reliable catch data. Also, a new length-based Bayesian biomass estimation (LBB) method will be presented for estimating stock status–such as needed by CMSY and other SRA methods–from length frequency samples from the commercial fishery.

AGEC 350: Static and Dynamic Efficiency Part 1

Static efficiency in the allocation of resources.

Fisheries Economics & Policy: Intro to Fisheries Management

This video is a part of Conservation Strategy Fund's collection of environmental economic lessons and was made possible thanks to the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation. This series is for individuals who want to learn - or review - the basic economics of conservation. The first of our Fisheries Economics & Policy series, this video introduces the concept of how a population of fish can be managed sustainably. The series will cover management strategies to preserve fishing in the long term and will include concepts such as open access, common pool resources, tragedy of the commons, maximum economic yield, taxes and subsidies, reducing effort, territorial use rights, transferable quotas and externalities.

Fisheries Economics & Policy: Marine Protected Areas

This video is a part of Conservation Strategy Fund's collection of environmental economic lessons and was made possible thanks to the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation. This series is for individuals who want to learn - or review - the basic economics of conservation. This video looks at marine protected areas within the fishing industry and the costs and benefits involved in establishing these areas. The Fisheries Economics & Policy series will cover management strategies to preserve fishing in the long term and will include concepts such as open access, common pool resources, tragedy of the commons, maximum economic yield, taxes and subsidies, reducing effort, territorial use rights, transferable quotas and externalities.

Fisheries Economics & Policy: Territorial Use Rights Fisheries

This video is a part of Conservation Strategy Fund's collection of environmental economic lessons and was made possible thanks to the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation. This series is for individuals who want to learn - or review - the basic economics of conservation. This video looks at territorial use rights fisheries and the costs and benefits involved for both the fishermen and the environment. The Fisheries Economics & Policy series will cover management strategies to preserve fishing in the long term and will include concepts such as open access, common pool resources, tragedy of the commons, maximum economic yield, taxes and subsidies, reducing effort, territorial use rights, transferable quotas and externalities.
