Abstract: From pg. 4: "While answers to these questions are critical to the design of appropriate management regimes, it is almost impossible to get sufficient empirical data to test these hypotheses. One can, however, build models of panmictic and metapopulations to explore these questions. Consequently, here we explore a series of illustrative models in which local populations - modeled as either panmictic or metapopulation structures - are managed as if they comprised a single large population. These models are a dynamic version of the generic bioeconomic model of a single stock (Clark, Anderson) and are used to investigate the circumstances under which common regulatory procedures might lead to depletion of the fishery."
