Bioeconomic losses from overharvesting tuna

Kompas, Thomas; Che, Nhu-Tuong; Grafton, Quentin


Stochastic dynamic programming is used to model the world's largest fishery-tunas of the western and central Pacific-and to show that adopting a biomass target that maximizes the discounted economic profits (BMEY) from harvesting would result in larger stocks compared to de facto biological targets, and also lower catches relative to business as usual.
