We present a conceptual model for the analysis of the costs and benefit aspects of the risk inherent in IUU activity. We then develop and present a map of IUU incidences as reported in the Fisheries Centre's Sea Around Us project IUU global database. This map shows that IUU activities are quite widespread geographically. We next present an analysis of the cost and benefit aspects of risks of IUU fishing. A key result of the study is that for the cases analyzed as a group; the expected benefits… Expand

We present a conceptual model for the analysis of the costs and benefit aspects of the risk inherent in IUU activity. We then proceed to develop and present a map of IUU incidences as reported in theExpand
Estimating illegal and unreported catches from marine ecosystems: a basis for change
To evaluate the impacts of fishing on marine ecosystems, the total extraction of fish must be known. Putting a figure on total extraction entails the difficult task of estimating, in addition toExpand
The Economics of Illegal Fishing: A Behavioral Model
This paper analyzes the microeconomic behavior of fishers responding to imperfectly enforced regulations through illegal fishing and efforts to avoid detection. An intraseasonal optimization model isExpand
Blue Water Crime: Deterrence, Legitimacy, and Compliance in Fisheries
This study adds to the limited body of empirical evidence on the effect that legitimacy and deterrence have on compliance behavior. The theoretical models of compliance behavior tested include theExpand
Towards sustainability in world fisheries
TLDR
Zoning the oceans into unfished marine reserves and areas with limited levels of fishing effort would allow sustainable fisheries, based on resources embedded in functional, diverse ecosystems. Expand
The illegal and unregulated fishery for toothfish in the Southern Ocean, and the CCAMLR catch documentation scheme
Fishing for toothfish in Antarctic waters started in the 1980s. Large amounts of illegal and unregulated fishing were observed in the mid-1990s, reaching 4 times the regulated catch in 1997. TheExpand
A socio‐economic theory of regulatory compliance
An enriched theoretical model of regulatory compliance is developed in this paper. The body of empirical evidence demonstrates that the pure deterrence model of regulatory compliance, which focusesExpand
Product Aggregation, Market Integration, and Relationships between Prices: An Application to World Salmon Markets
Relationships between prices of goods have held interest within economics in at least two areas - market integration and product aggregation. There is a close relationship between market integrationExpand
Why People Obey the Law
People obey the law if they believe it's legitimate, not because they fear punishment--this is the startling conclusion of Tom Tyler's classic study. Tyler suggests that lawmakers and law enforcersExpand
