Visiting Hours Only, or: Catch and Release Revisited by D.W. Chapman
This paper reviews concepts of participant entry limitation in fisheries. Author contends that entry control should lead to highest net annual return to society, hence maximize fishery values in competitive resource allocation. Author suggests that managers could limit entry in sport fisheries by sale of weekly permits, odd or even day fishing controlled by ending license number drawings or check stations. He argues that entry control will prove necessary even in catch and release fisheries.
