Aquaculture, capture fisheries, and wild fish stocks
AbstractThis paper employs a general equilibrium model to examine how the rise of aquaculture and changes in wild fish stocks are related for herbivorous fish species. Two influences, human population growth and technological improvement in aquaculture, are studied. Both of these factors raise aquaculture production, but human population growth reduces wild fish stocks, while technological progress in aquaculture raises wild stocks.
