David W. Carter, Ph.D.

Industry Economist

David W. Carter is an economist at the NOAA Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Miami. He has spent nearly 20 years conducting research on the marine recreational fisheries from North Carolina to Texas. His estimates of the economic value of sportfish are routinely used in the analysis of recreational fishing policy.  Dr. Carter has also developed models to forecast recreational fishing effort and harvest using novel indicators outside the fishery such as climate and internet search volume. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science where he regularly advises graduate students and conducts lectures. Dr. Carter completed his M.S. and Ph.D. in resource economics from the University of Florida and his undergraduate studies at Stetson University.
