Item description for The Economics of Fisheries Management by Lee G. Anderson...
In 1977 Lee Anderson published the first edition of The Economics of Fisheries Management. Reprinted here is the second edition, 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.
