ABSTRACT

The objective of this project was to assess the competitive position of the U.S. groundfish industry in global groundfish markets, considering the costs of harvesting, processing, and marketing groundfish products; the nature of the demand for those groundfish products; the nature of supply from competing sources of groundfish products; and, the nature of institutional arrangements, including government policy here and abroad.  An economic model was developed to depict the "internationalization" of the world groundfish market.  Based on the model, the researchers concluded that extended fisheries jurisdiction, while having little impact on landings and ex-vessel prices, has played an important role in international groundfish trade.
