Economic Recovery Models

In order to understand the magnitude of the long-term individual and joint economic impacts of recent natural and technological disasters to recreational and commercial fishing, multi-year baseline economic information about each sector in all five Gulf states are currently being compiled from various secondary sources. Econometric analyses of these long-term data are conducted to determine the rate of economic recovery and measure the long-term economic damages to these affected economic sectors. It is suggested that these assessments be conducted on a region-wide basis, state by state, and species by species.
