It is the maximum that can be caught on a sustainable level without reducing the long-term stock, and is obtained by exerting that level of effort at which total sustainable revenue is maximized. Clearly any bioeconomic equilibrium point to the right of the MSY is inefficient. 1B). In some cases the aim of fishery regulation has been to achieve MSY by measures such as increasing the cost of fishing or shortening the fishing season. Economists have argued, however, that the policy to achieve MSY is generally economically inefficient when taking into account that the private costs of fishing for each fisherman is influenced by other fishermen and the specific fishing conditions (Plourde, 1970; Brown, 1974).

To see what happens when the discount rate approaches infinity, which is equivalent to placing no value on future catch, we rewrite Equation (7) as (Pearce and Turner, 1990): 1 d{ p − c(X ∗ )G(X ∗ )} (12) · = p − c(X ∗ ) δ dX Equation (12) now reduces to p = c(X ∗ ). This situation is equivalent to total revenue being equal to total cost. 1A, which would be reached in an open-access situation. A situation of open-access is thus identical to an extreme case of myopic behavior. Equation (12) helps us to interpret the meaning of Equation (7) more clearly: If we reduce the stock by harvesting a small amount X , there will be an immediate gain equal to the right side of the Equation.

They considered both a fishing policy that allows for extinction and one that does not. Maximizing net present value of a fishery before and after a potential collapse, they show that possible extinction after a collapse due to critical depensation can well be part of an optimal harvesting scheme. This is the case if the present value is largest in a fishing scenario that allows for extinction, which depends on factors such as the size of the collapse of the population and the possibility of a collapse.
