Fisheries Bioeconomics: Theory, Modelling and Management

J.C. Seijo (Author) D. Defeo (Author) S. Salas (Author)
Synopsis The overutilization of fish stocks, the overcapitalization of fisheries, the removal of associated benefits to society and growing concern over the conservation of marine biodiversity have resulted in a line of fisheries research that is multidisciplinary, dynamic and precautionary in approach. All the biological, ecological and economic factors need to be analysed if the forces regulating the dynamics of a fishery are to be appraised. This publication looks at the assumptions underlying the optimal allocation of renewable natural resources; lists the bioeconomic points of reference resulting from analysis of fisheries in supposed conditions of equilibrium; analyses bioeconomic models according to ecological interdependence factors (such as competition and predation) and technological factors (such as competition between fleets with different fishing capacity); offers a time-series analysis of fisheries and estimates the level of optimal effort; proposes mathematical models applied to bioeconomic analysis to support fisheries management plans; refutes the assumption of uniform resource distribution, incorporating a spatial dimension in fisheries dynamics analysis; and expounds basic elements of decision-making theory and criteria that reflect different attitudes to risk aversion in fisheries management.
