Small Boat Fishing in Hawaii: A Random Utility Model of Ramp and Ocean Destinations
AbstractThis paper investigates small boat fishing on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. We develop a model in which anglers choose where to launch their trailered boats, as well as their ocean destination. The model allows us to study spatial aspects of small boat fishing, including the benefits and costs of attributes of different regions of the ocean, such as fish aggregating devices. Second, it allows us to understand the effects of limiting access to various fishing areas.
