Off-Campus

Dr Eriko Hoshino is a fisheries economist and a postdopctoral research fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. Her work focuses on simulation-based management strategy evaluation (MSE) and bio-economic modelling that links harvesters and biological/ecological systems for fisheries resources in Australian and international waters. She is interested in quantitative approaches that bridge the disciplines of economics and marine ecology/biological sciences, and applies them to research questions that can provide economically-sound management advice for real-world fisheries.

Biography

Dr Hoshino has over 12 years working experience in fisheries and renewable marine and coastal resources, including 6 years as a fishery consultant at the World Bank (Washington DC), 2 years at IMAG (a UK based consulting firm), and 2 years as a research analyst at the World Resource Institute (Washington DC).

Research Themes

Incorporating social and economic dimensions into fishery modelling has been one of Eriko's primary interests. Over the past four years at UTAS, Eriko has been involved with two bioeconomic decision-support tool projects, one on Southern Rock Lobster (SRL) and the other on abalone resources, funded by the Australian Seafood Cooperative Research Centre (CRC). These bioeconomic models are useful in providing economically-sound management advice beyond biological sustainability, and help harvesters and resource managers to make informed business/management decisions.

Eriko has developed a set of bioeconomic adaptive management schemes that respond to changes in economic, biological and environmental conditions, using two case studies in fisheries targeting Japanese common squid and Pacific saury (Hoshino et al 2012; Hoshino et al 2014). Such adaptive schemes have the potential for a real world application for the management of short-lived species that are subject to large inter-annual fluctuations in abundance and prices. She developed a similar bioeconomic simulation framework to investigate the relative advantages of an input control measure based on Maximum Economic Yield (MEY) versus the current biologically oriented measure (Hoshino et al 2010). This work was further extended (Edward et al., 2011) to investigate trade-offs between the level of enforcement of harvest regulations for the Patagonian toothfish fishery around the island of South Georgina, and economic and biological benefits. These work have directly contributed to the decision on changes in catch quota regulations and maintaining high level of monitoring efforts set by CCAMLR (Commission for the Convention of Antarctic Marine Living Resources).

Eriko has also applied various quantitative approaches that allow investigations of human-ecosystem linkages. For instance, she used econometrics to investigate how the prices of farmed seafood products may affect the prices of wild harvested products, using the Japanese abalone import market as an example. She applied a Bayesian Belief Network model to a community-based coastal resource management system in the Key Islands, Indonesia. The model represents the complex interrelationships of factors influencing fishing activities of coastal communities and implementation of customary marine tenure over their waters. The model was then used to identify the key factors which influence the performance indicators representing economic, social, and environmental objectives of the system.
