Current Activities

Dan has been an economist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center since 2003 and a visiting scholar at the University of California, Davis, since 2008. His primary research activities involve applying non-market valuation methods to measure the demand for, and value of, recreational fishing opportunities, protection of living marine resources, and other marine ecosystem services. Many of his projects involve conducting economic surveys to collect information from saltwater anglers, charter boat businesses, and the general public necessary to analyze and estimate economic values, preferences, and behavior of people potentially affected by fisheries, protected species, and other marine management decisions. In addition, he studies catch shares markets, methods for improving the measurement of economic impacts associated with fishing activities, and methods for incorporating non-market values for marine resources in ecosystem-based management and coastal and marine spatial planning contexts.

Since 2015, Dan has been an associate editor at Marine Resource Economics. He has served on the editorial council of the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics and as a guest associate editor for Frontiers in Marine Science. He currently co-chairs the NMFS Ecosystem Service Valuation Working Group (ESVWG) and the PICES marine ecosystem service working group (WG-MES).

Background

Dan graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a B.S. in Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning (highest honors) and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics. His dissertation research focused on using non-market valuation methods to value recreation, time, and water quality improvements at beaches in San Diego County.
