Abstract: The use of renewable resources is examined as a cooperative production game, the focus here being on fisheries. It is shown how pooling and exchange of individual endowments may open for substitutions that generate greater efficiency. We introduce a sharing rule that complies with the core concept, applied to heterogeneous multi-species fisheries with transferable utility.

Keywords: Resource management; fisheries; heterogeneity; linear programming; cooperative games; core allocations; substitution possibilities; common property.
