Integrating Socio-Economic Drivers in an Explicit-Time, Qualitative Fisheries Model

Participant : Christine Largou√ęt.

EcoMata is an explicit-time, qualitative modelling tool for assessing the ecosystem impacts of fishing and evaluating options for fishery management. The model is being developed further by integrating simple socio- economic drivers in the fishery system. Specifically, we have introduced a new module of automata that describes the profits associated to a specific fishing intensity and specific timing. This new module allows the evaluation of management strategies that are economically viable. The approach is illustrated on a coral- reef fishery in the Pacific that has been the focus of previous modelling work. [7].
