Why do the regulations on fishing work "well" but we cannot put similar regulations on other forms of resources?

Dams- which ones are worth while, which ones aren't. How to determine this and how to weigh them against fisheries, habitat loss, etc.

I'd like to review the Gordon model if possible. I think that was important in the fisheries chapter, so I want to make sure I understand it.

I'd like to talk about the issue of cattle farming next to the Maury river. In Humston's ENV class we talked about the waste going into the river, but that farmers had paid a premium for property next to the river so their cattle could drink. I thought it was an interesting topic and think it could add to our ongoing discussion on environmental externalities.

I'd like to talk about Aquaculture. Is it a sustainable way to rehabilitate fish populations? How do fish react when they enter back into their true natural habitat?

Oliver Nettere

One thing that I would find interesting to discuss while we're on the topic of forest management and economics is the issue of the nation's National Forest system. These are areas that are by definition owned by the taxpayer and a public good that we can all enjoy recreationally and intrinsically. However, these same areas can be harvested for timber by the government or leased to individual timber firms who can harvest for a profit. There seems to be a disconnect here making the National Forests appear to be both a public and private good.
