Value of Fisheries Landings in Regional Seas

W. Swartz, R. Watson, U. R. Sumaila, (2011). “Value of Fisheries Landings in Regional Seas.,” Fisheries Centre Research Report No. 19 (UBC, Vancouver, BC, Canada)

We describe a global ex-vessel fish price database, as required for understanding the economic behavior of participants in the world’s fisheries. We demonstrate its usefulness, in the Regional Sea context, using the marine fisheries of the Eastern African Regional Sea as an example, by linking it to a spatially defined catch database, which makes it possible to attach landed values to species in both time and space.
