  • 20. significant consequencesNo individual fisherman has anincentive to restrain his catch in theinterest of future returns, foranything he leaves in the sea fortomorrow will be taken by otherstoday. Thus, fishery stocks tend tobe used at, and frequently beyond,the point of maximum sustainableyield.
  • 21. economic wasteIn the absence of controls on capital and labour, there will tend to be too much effort spent on too few fish. In over-utilized fisheries, the same, or even larger, amounts of fish can be taken with fewer fishermen and vessels than are actually employed. This means that the same, or greater, total revenues could be produced with lower total costs.
