• Demographic and economic disparities among Arctic regions 

      Schmidt, Jennifer Irene; Aanesen, Margrethe; Klokov, Konstantin; Kruschov, Sergei; Hausner, Vera Helene (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-20)
      We use demographic and economic indicators to analyze spatial differences and temporal trends across 18 regions surrounding the Arctic Ocean. Multifactor and cluster analysis were used on 10 indicators reflecting income, employment and demography from 1995 to 2008. The main difference is between regions with high population densities, low natural growth rate, and low unemployment (Russia, Norway ...
    • Informing management strategies for a reserve: Results from a discrete choice experiment survey 

      Bui, Bich Xuan; Sandorf, Erlend Dancke; Aanesen, Margrethe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-05-18)
      It is well-known that operating within the boundaries of a national park provides commercial actors with the opportunity to charge a price premium, though this has to a lesser degree been demonstrated for marine protected areas. We estimate national tourists' willingness-to-pay a price premium for boat trips in the Nha Trang Bay Marine Protected Are, Vietnam, using a discrete choice experiment. Our ...
    • Nemo-effekten og koraller 

      Armstrong, Claire W.; Aanesen, Margrethe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2014-05-07)
      Bryr den norske befolkningen seg om dyphavet og de organismer som lever der selv om vi ikke har noen direkte nytte av dem? Er vi villig til å ofre økonomisk aktivitet som fiskeri og oljevirksomhet for beskytte miljøet i dyphavet? Vår studie sier ja.
    • The Political Game of European Fisheries Management 

      Aanesen, Margrethe; Armstrong, Claire W. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-14)
      European fisheries activities are subject to a hierarchy of regulatory authorities. This raises questions regarding the implications of strategic interaction between different authority levels concerning the regulation of these activities. We apply a bio-economic objective function where fishers and regulators have environmental, economic and social preferences, and where fishers are subject to ...
    • Sequential bargaining, external effects of agreement, and public intervention 

      Aanesen, Margrethe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      In some bargaining situations, agreement has implications for agents beyond the parties involved, and if so, delays in reaching an agreement or failing to reach an agreement, when this would be profitable, may imply significant welfare losses. The question raised in this paper is whether the intervention of a government, who has a positive valuation of agreement and therefore offers a subsidy, will ...
    • Stakeholder Influence and Optimal Regulations: A Common-Agency Analysis of Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Regulations 

      Aanesen, Margrethe; Armstrong, Claire W. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      One aspect of ecosystem-based management is to include new stakeholders. When an environmental NGO (ENGO) gets a say in the fisheries management, this will affect the authorities' optimal regulation. Combining a principal-agent model and a steady-state bioeconomic model, we show that under symmetric information the authorities will moderate their use of regulation as a response to the ENGO's increased ...
    • Valuing coastal recreation and the visual intrusion from commercial activities in Arctic Norway 

      Aanesen, Margrethe; Falk-Andersson, Jannike; Vondolia, Godwin Kofi; Borch, Trude; Navrud, Ståle; Tinch, Dugald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-04)
      The coastal zone in the Arctic is being extensively used for recreational activities. Simultaneously, there is an increasing pressure from commercial activities. We present results from a discrete choice experiment implemented in Arctic Norway, revealing how households in this region make trade-offs between recreational activities and commercial developments in the coastal zone. Our results show ...
    • What does stakeholder involvement mean for fisheries management?

    • Willingness to pay for unfamiliar public goods: Preserving cold-water coral in Norway 

      Aanesen, Margrethe; Armstrong, Claire W.; Czajkowski, Mikolaj; Falk-Andersson, Jannike; Hanley, Nick; Navrud, Ståle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-17)
      The world's largest concentration of cold-water coral (CWC) is found off the Norwegian coast. Most CWC discoveries are recent, posing new challenges for Norwegian coastal and fishery authorities regarding the management of deep-sea resources. Scientific knowledge of CWC is limited, and many citizens have not even heard about them. This creates problems for the application of the stated preference ...
