Abstract

Abstract A general model for man's utilization of water resources is presented, in which the linkage between man's production activities and environmental systems is formulated based on Whitcomb's generalized joint production model and Kneese's transfer function. The general model is specified for a particular case of aquaculture in Lake Kasumigaura so as to evaluate in terms of the price data of 1978 the welfare cost of eutrophication-caused production losses under the assumption of horizontal demand curve.
