A natural experiment in fisheries management
The Atlantic sea scallop fishery in the USA and the offshore scallop fishery in the Canadian Maritimes offer a naturally occurring experiment in fisheries management. Canada has adopted a transferable output quota system and the USA has used a mix of size, effort and area controls. This paper compares the consequences over 15 years for the resource, the fishery, and the management regime.
