INCORPORATING STOCHASTIC HARVESTS INTO AN ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTION: THE U.S. ATLANTIC AND GULF OF MEXICO PELAGIC LONGLINE FLEET

Larry Perruso, Timothy G. Taylor and Sherry Larkin ()

No 19770, 2002 Annual meeting, July 28-31, Long Beach, CA from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Vessel operators maximize expected utility indirectly through cost-minimizing production decisions subject to stochastic harvests. Data on the Atlantic longline fleet, available from NMFS logbooks, is used for the empirical analysis. An ex ante multi-input cost function that incorporates expected rather than realized output levels is estimated and results are reported.
