SPATIAL BEHAVIOR OF RENEWABLE RESOURCE HARVESTERS: THE CALIFORNIA SEA URCHIN FISHERY

This paper analyzes spatial patterns of exploitation in the California sea urchin fishery. A Random Utility Model of urchin diver participation and location choice yields a conditional logit specification. Results demonstrate that diver attributes, location-specific features, and characteristics of individual days are important determinants of harvester choices.
