Chapters 17: DQ 10

10. Various cultures have come up with their own methods to limit catch size and prevent fishery collapse. In old Hawaii, certain fishing grounds near shore could be used only by certain individuals. And among lobstermen in Maine, strict territorial rights are handed out so that only certain people can harvest lobsters in certain waters. Discuss specifically how these systems provide incentives for conservation. Then think about the enforcement of these property rights.

Do you think similar systems could be successfully enforced for deep-sea fishing, far off shore?

10. Various cultures have come up with their own methods to limit catch size and prevent fishery collapse. In old Hawaii, certain fishing grounds near shore could be used only by certain individuals. And among lobstermen in Maine, strict territorial rights are handed out so that only certain people can harvest lobsters in certain waters. Discuss specifically how these systems provide incentives for conservation. Then think about the enforcement of these property rights.

Do you think similar systems could be successfully enforced for deep-sea fishing, far off shore?

Answer: Those given rights to a certain fishery have an incentive to harvest at a sustainable rate so that they can generate a long-run stream of profits. If the area to be fished is carefully defined and reasonably small, enforcing the property rights over a given fishery should be relatively easy. The further the fishing moves from shore, the more difficult and costly it would be to enforce these rights. Illegal fishers could go undetected more easily, and the added time and fuel costs to patrol further from shore would greater limit the ability to enforce.
