Production Economics and Optimal Stock Size in a North Atlantic Fishery


  • Bjorndal, Trond


This paper contains an analysis of a fishery production function and an empir ical analysis of the North Sea herring fishery. An intertemporal prof it function is defined by introducing stock dynamics and the concept of a sole resource manager. Some new results with respect to the rela tionship between the optimal stock level and production technology ar e derived. Estimates of the optimal stock level for herring are also presented.
