FAME Ph.D. COURSE: Applied Econometrics for Renewable Resource Economics
University of Southern Denmark, Esbjerg, Denmark, 13-17 May 2013
Centre for Fisheries & Aquaculture Management & Economics. The course is arranged together with University of Kiel
Dale Squires, NOAA and University of California San Diego
Dan Gordon, University of Calgary
Brooks Kaiser, University of Southern Denmark
This course gives a state-of-the-art view into different econometric topics used in renewable resource economics.
It starts out with time-series analysis, use of structural vs. reduced form models, identification issues, hypothesis and specification tests, panel and dynamic panel data, maximum likelihood and General Method of Moments estimation, etc.
Then the course goes into three applied areas:
· Bio-economic modeling
· Valuation: Revealed preferences (mainly hedonic and travel cost)
· Productivity, including technical change, efficiency, aggregation and separability
· Spatial resource econometrics
Teaching will be a combination of lectures, exercises and hands-on. Stata will be used as software.
There is no course fee.
Deadline for enrolment is 22th April 2013. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

OK, so this looks great. There is a huge need for further understanding of empirical fisheries economics (i.e., I'd really love to take this course). But, hedonics? There aren't very many hedonic fisheries papers and since commercial fish have prices there is little need for valuation (here is an exception). On the recreation side there is the hedonic travel cost method but that doesn't draw much interest these days (click here for an exception). So I wonder why the course doesn't consider stated preferences, which has had a big impact in fisheries economics?
