L’Économique des pêcheries : une revue de la littérature


  • Monette, Marcel

    (Agent de recherche au C.R.D.E., Université de Montréal)


The literature on fishery economics is relatively new. Two papers published in an interval of a few months in the mid-fifties have drawn the lines of this analysis. The first, written by H.S. Gordon (1954), is considered as being the seminal work in static fishery economics while the second, by A.D. Scott (1955), is presented as the study which had defined the basis of the dynamic analysis of fishery economics; an analysis which grew in importance in the early seventies due to the developments made in the modern theory of capital. La littérature sur l’économique des pêcheries est relativement récente. Deux articles publiés à quelques mois d’intervalle, au milieu des années 50, fixèrent les grandes lignes de l’analyse. Le premier, de H.S. Gordon (1954), est considéré comme l’étude de base sur les modèles statiques des pêcheries. Le deuxième, de A.D. Scott (1955), est présenté comme étant celui qui fixa les fondements de l’analyse dynamique des pêcheries, analyse qui ne prit toutefois son essor qu’au début des années 70 sur la base des développements réalisés dans la théorie moderne du capital.
