Economic Linkage Impacts of Hawaii’s Longline Fishing Regulations
Fisheries regulations driven by environmental concerns would not only
directly affect fisheries sectors but also tend to indirectly influence
other sectors through intersectoral input–output linkages. This
paper examines both backward and forward linkages of Hawaii’s fisheries
sectors to the rest of the economy, and based on this evaluates the potential
economic impacts of longline fishing regulations in Hawaii. We find that
Hawaii’s fisheries sectors have strong linkages to the rest of the
economy; regulations on them will thus have profound economic impacts.
