Summary
The authors of Fish, Markets, and Fishermen argue that the masons are primarily economic, and at overfishing is an inevitable consequence of the current sets of incentives facing ocean fishermen. This volume illuminates these incentives as they operate both in the aggregate and at the level of day-to-day decision-making by vessel skippers. The authors provide a primer on fish population biology and the economics of fisheries under various access regimes, and use that information in analyzing policies for managing fisheries. The book: -- provides a concise statistical overview of the world's fisheries-- documents the decline of fisheries worldwide-- gives the reader a clear understanding of the economics and population biology of fish-- examines the management issues associated with regulating fisheries-- offers case studies of fisheries under different management regimes-- examines and compares the consequences of various regimes and considers the implications for policy making
