UDaily: Anderson named fellow of International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade

Lee G. Anderson, retired Maxwell P. and Mildred H. Harrington Professor of Marine Studies in the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, has been named a fellow of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade (IIFET) in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of fisheries economics. He is one of the first four IIFET fellows named and will deliver an address at the organization’s conference in Australia in July.

Anderson’s The Economics of Fisheries Management, published in 1977, revised in 1986 and republished in 2004, has served as an important learning tool for fisheries economists nationally and internationally. He also wrote The Bioeconomics of Fishery Management with Juan Carlos Seijo and a two-volume edited collection of previous published articles on fisheries economics.
