Modeling the Impact of Days at Sea Leasing in the Northeast Multispecies Fishery


This paper presents a preliminary economic analysis of the impact of implementing a days at sea leasing system in the Northeast Multispecies Groundfish Fishery. Linear and non-linear programming techniques were used to estimate days at sea lease prices and evaluate profits, vessel activity, fishing effort, crew employment and changes in harvest levels compared to a system in which vessels utilize their full days-at-sea allocation and to actual performance in 2001.
