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.
