Sep. 22, 2016 alt text Developing Borough and Census Area (BCA)-level Regional Economic Models for Southwest Alaska Fisheries

Deadline for written questions: 9.9.2016
Deadline for submissions: 9.28.2016

The first objective of the proposed project is to (i) develop a SAM for each of the six BCAs and (ii) develop a multi-regional SAM (MRSAM) for each of the six BCAs. Five regions will be specified in each of the six MRSAMs: a BCA in SW, rest of SW (RSW), rest of Alaska (RAK), West Coast (WC), and rest of US (RUS). The second objective is to develop single-region and multi-regional economic models including SAM models and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models using the SAMs and MRSAMs. In developing the SAMs/ MRSAMs, the contractor will need to combine non-seafood data from IMPLAN with seafood industries’ data from the surveys and interviews recently completed. Results from these models will be useful for fishery managers and others who are interested in understanding the economic impacts of fishery management actions or exogenous shocks (such as climate change) on fishing dependent communities in SW region and other regions.
