My research focuses on recreational fishery management. Recreational fisheries are managed in a number of ways, but in the United States, one of the most costly and widely used methods is fish stocking (i.e. raising fish and putting them into the water). 2.5 billion individual fish are stocked each year in the US, but the amount of fish stocked in any particular water body is more or less arbitrary, ignoring the costs and benefits of stocking. My research investigates optimal fish stocking (from an economic perspective) so that managers can save money and apply resources where they are needed most.
