Open Access And Missing Markets In Artisanal Fishing


  • Liese, Christopher
  • Smith, Martin D.
  • Kramer, Randall A.


This paper combines a model of open access fisheries exploitation with a distance-based approach to missing labor and product markets. The model generates predictions about the circumstances under which exploitation increases or decreases with distance. An econometric model is estimated with survey data from artisanal fishing households in Minahasa, Indonesia. The results can be used to assess the impacts of improved transportation infrastructure on fishery exploitation.
