Bioeconomics Of Sustainable Harvest Of Competing Species: A Comment

Abstract

Flaaten’s (1991) study on competing species conjectures that a higher price (harvesting costs) of one species yields a lower (greater) own stock-size and a greater (lower) stock-size of the competing species. I show both conjectures are wrong.
