Foreign Conflicts and OECD Fish Catches (with Maral Kichian (University of Ottawa)

ABSTRACT : We investigate whether the presence of conflict in foreign countries affects fish catches in OECD countries. We make use of country-level data on fish catches dating back to the 1950s, combined with conflict data. Our work is inspired by Hendrix and Glaser (2011) who have obtained that a country’s maritime fish catches tend to decrease when there is a conflict onset within the same country. Our results indicate that there may be a significant diversion effect. The analysis seeks to better inform policy-making devoted to the sustainable management of world fisheries.

Keywords : fisheries, conflict, illegal fishing
