Science-Based Management of Data-Limited Fisheries: A Supplement to the Catch Share Design Manual
Apply an approach for science-based management of fisheries, even in the absence of good data
The majority of fisheries worldwide lack sufficient data to conduct industry-standard stock assessments and a recent Science paper shows these fisheries are at serious risk. Due to this lack of data, more than 10,000 fisheries worldwide have been left out of recent advances in effective management. This guide outlines an approach for science-based management of fisheries, even in the absence of good data.
