Marie's research focuses on developing economic models of shoreside fish processors, primarily to predict and analyze behavioral changes due to fisheries management decisions. Her current work studies how the West Coast Groundfish Trawl Catch Share Program influenced processor outcomes, and the effects of allocating harvest quota to shoreside processors in individual fishing quota (IFQ) programs.
