Fisheries Economics & Policy: Marine Protected Areas

This video is a part of Conservation Strategy Fund’s collection of environmental economic lessons and was made possible thanks to the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation. This series is for individuals who want to learn – or review – the basic economics of conservation. This video looks at marine protected areas within the fishing industry and the costs and benefits involved in establishing these areas. The Fisheries Economics & Policy series will cover management strategies to preserve fishing in the long term and will include concepts such as open access, common pool resources, tragedy of the commons, maximum economic yield, taxes and subsidies, reducing effort, territorial use rights, transferable quotas and externalities.
