A Repeated Mixed Logit Approach to Valuing a Local Sport Fishery: The Case of Southeast Alaska Salmon
We estimate the values of fishing opportunities and changes in harvest rates for single-day private boat saltwater fishing for king and silver salmon in southeast Alaska, using a repeated mixed logit model of trip frequency and distribution estimated jointly with anglers’ shadow values of time. The standard assumption that the shadow value of time is a fixed fraction of the angler’s wage is rejected in favor of a more flexible model. The mean value of a fishing choice occasion is approximately $45 per angler, and mean marginal values of a king salmon and a silver salmon are approximately $71 and $106.
