Saving Ocean Fisheries with Property Rights is the first in a series of PERC videos that will document how Free Market Environmentalism solves real-world conservation problems. Don Leal, PERC’s research director, and Mark Lundsten, a former boat captain on the Bering sea, combine research and real life to tell what happens when open access fishing is replaced with catch share management. The change has brought a stunning turn about in the lives and incomes of fishermen and in the health of depleted fisheries.
Below is a list of Don Leal’s research available on the PERC web site and in book form.
