STOCK AND CONGESTION EXTERNALITIES IN THE FISHERY: THE CASE OF THE GEORGES BANK SCALLOP

No 284006, 1976 Annual Meeting, August 15-18, State College, Pennsylvania from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Estimation of U.S. and Canadian yield functions in a bioeconomic model of the Georges Bank scallop fishery indicated stock and congestion externalities. The latter resulted in nonconcavity of the combined yield function, thus generating the possibility of steady-state corner solutions where one nation would be eliminated from the fishery.
