Abstract:This dissertation evaluates the policy and production decisions that shape Hawaii’s longline
fishery. Chapter 1 develops a novel positive mathematical programming framework to evaluate
the economic impact to individual fishers from proposed policy changes. Chapter 2 estimates a
Bayesian model of the joint production of desirable and undesirable catch and conducts a
Bayesian decision analysis to optimize annual sea turtle interaction limits conditional on the
value of sea turtles. Chapter 3 examines the labor supply decision of Hawaii’s longline fishers
by disaggregating the price and quantity components of revenue and estimating their
respective relationships to fishers’ trip length labor supply decisions.
