h The best economic outcome is achieved in a fishery when the total allowable catch has been allocated among competing groups so the value of the last fish caught to each group is the same. h Estimating the total value to recreational fishers of additional fish caught is complicated by the fact the recreational fishing experience is not bought or sold in a market (i.e. is a non-market good). h This means that a special method of determining its value must be used which does not rely on price data that is usually available from market transactions.
