|Development of an Integrated Economic and Ecological Framework for Ecosystem-Based Management of Fisheries in New England|
Di Jin (WHOI); Tracey Dalton (University of Rhode Island); Eric Thunberg (NOAA Fisheries Northeast Fisheries Science Center)
Our objective is to develop an integrated economic-ecological framework to advance the ecosystem-based managment of fisheries in New England. The framework can be used for assessing the socioeconomic impacts of managment regulations and for evaluating alternative managment options. The framework will be implemented by linking a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the regional New England economy to a marine food web for the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank.
