How Commercial Fisheries are Managed

Quickly comparing and understanding different fishery management approaches (and their outcomes) is a useful and important skill for policy makers.

Now, a group of students (and one professor) at the University of Washington have made it much easier. Last month they published How commercial fisheries are managed, a paper that graphically represents every kind of fishery management scheme for easy comparison, while also using real-world case studies to explain each one.

Anderson et al. 2018 and its discussion will be highly useful for fishery managers and policy makers and would also be a good addition to any kind of discussion on natural resource management.
