  • Description:
    "The theory of household production serves as a framework to evaluate implicit markets and assess welfare implications of policy measures in outdoor recreation . Inrecreational fisheries each of the most common policy variables are incorporated into a household production model of a boating activity. The activity is characterized by number of fish landed by species, fish size , number of fishing trips , and number of non-fishing trips . From the results of the conceptual model it is concluded that the marginal valuation of the fishery resource depends on how the resource is measured (number of f i s h landed and fish size) as well as the disposition of the catch (release, commercial sales or subsistence). These findings extend previous recreational fishing studies which assume fish size does not generate recreational benefits independent of the quantity of fish landed"--Summary and conclusion.
