Standard fishery managementmodels suggest
that regulations designed to produce maximum rent
should reduce effort – and thus employment – from its
open-access level. Using a simple diffusion model, we
show that the opposite can be true when the spatial dis-
tribution of effort, as well as the total amount of effort,
can be controlled. Under certain ecological and eco-
nomic circumstances that we describe, optimal spatial
management can produce “triple benefits” compared to
open access: an increase in rent, an increase in standing
stock, and an increase in employment.
