Antarctic tourism and the maritime heritage
(Discussion paper2008:20, Working paper, 2008-09)
Maritime activity in the Antarctic region goes back to the 18th Century. It evolved from exploration and discoveries to commercial activities, especially sealing and whaling. Antarctic tourism is a more recent phenomenon, ...
The 19th century Antarctic sealing industry : sources, data and economic significance
(Discussion paper2008:21, Working paper, 2008-09)
Sealing was the first exploitative industry in the Antarctic region. Throughout the 19th century it was characterized by large fluctuations in harvests and shifts in hunting grounds as seals were almost exterminated in ...
An overview of empirical analysis of behavior of fishermen facing new regulation
(Discussion paper2010:21, Working paper, 2010-08)
Atmospheric externalities and environmental taxation
(Discussion paper2010:23, Working paper, 2010-09)
The paper reviews the theory of environmental taxation under first best and second best conditions. It argues that negative environmental externalities lead to reductions of the provision of public goods, while investment ...
Spatial management of a fishery under parameter uncertainty
(Discussion paper2008:13, Working paper, 2008-06)
Spatial management of a fishery under parameter uncertainty is analyzed. The habitat is divided into two areas, and the effort level in the two areas may be different. The migration of biomass between the areas follows a ...
Continuous harvesting costs in sole-owner fisheries with increasing marginal returns
(Discussion paper2009:6, Working paper, 2009-09)
We develop a bioeconomic model to analyze a sole-owner fishery with fixed costs as well as a continuous cost function for the generalized Cobb-Douglas production function with increasing marginal returns to effort level. ...
Global warming and international fishery management : does anticipation of the temperature change matter?
(Discussion paper2010:19, Working paper, 2010-12)
This paper investigates the effects of climate-induced rising of ocean temperature on the optimal fishing policies in a two players’ non-cooperative game setting. We compare reactive management, under which the manager ...
A crisis that never came : the decline of the European Antarctic whaling industry in the 1950s and -60s
(Discussion paper2011:9, Working paper, 2011-05)
Optimal provision of public goods : implications for support to agriculture
(Discussion paper2007:6, Working paper, 2007-01)
This paper summarises a decade of research by the authors into the welfare economic foundations for agricultural policy. The main results are that the levels of support to agriculture in rich developed countries like ...
Cost allocation in collaborative forest transportation
(Discussion paper2006:15, Working paper, 2006)
Transportation planning is an important part of the wood flow chain in forestry. There are often several forest companies operating in the same region and co-ordination between two or more companies is rare. However, there ...
