Bioeconomics of Sustainable Fisheries

(Visit: Globally, over the past century, coastal fisheries have faced overharvesting and mismanagement. California is no exception. This video recounts stories from fishermen, and others engaged in commercial fisheries, about the decades-long struggle to replenish stocks through a variety of management measures. Through their experiences, we discover the many successes in recovering stocks, the capricious nature of the biology of some species, and also emerging challenges for managing fisheries sustainably, including climate change, regional resources management, access, and local infrastructure. Successfully managing the complex 'bioeconomic' dynamics of coupled natural and human ecosystems, such as fisheries, will provide an ongoing challenge of paramount importance for the survival of vibrant coastal communities.

The Economics of Fisheries

Update: This lecture replaces the video with John Reynolds, who worried that his lecture on fisheries science (he's a biologist) and policy might offend some people.

I gave this guest lecture to a class on fisheries *science* so they'd have an idea about the economics affecting their topic. Sorry for off-camera (and bad sound) discussion and questions

What is Environmental Economics? Professor Thomas Sterner

Learn about environmental economics from professor Thomas Sterner.

During the last two decades he has built up the Environmental Economics Unit at the University of Gothenburg, with a staff of about a dozen PhDs and another dozen graduate students. The unit has many research projects and gives a unique PhD program mainly for graduate students from developing countries. After graduating most of the PhDs join in the Environment for Development initiative which does policy relevant research in developing countries.

For the academic year 2015-2016, Thomas Sterner was elected as a visiting professor at the Collège de France. In 2012-2013 he was on sabbatical leave from Gothenburg university and worked as Chief Economist at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).

Research interest
Thomas Sterner's main areas of work is on discounting and on instrument design for climate and environmental policy. Within the latter subject applications range from general climate issues to more specific issues of carbon pricing, fuel taxes, carbon capture and storage, abatement of nitrogen oxides through refunded emission payments, policies in developing countries, natural resource issues including management of fisheries, buildings, transport, chemicals, plastics, antibiotics, biodiversity. In short anything related to circular economy, sustainability or economics of the Anthropocene.
