Conservation of a fishery through optimal taxation: a dynamic reaction model. (English) Zbl 1058.34060

A predator-prey fishery model is under consideration. The author analyses existence and stability of steady states. An optimal taxation policy on the basis of Pontryagin’s maximum principle is proposed.
