SNAP: Managing Data Limited Fisheries for Economic and Biological Objectives

Principal Investigators:

Jono R. Wilson, Carmen Revenga, and Jeremy Rude

Sixty four percent of global fisheries, comprising 80% of the global fish catch, lack the data and resources to perform formal stock assessments. These fisheries are estimated to be overfished, resulting in ecosystem degradation and reduced social and economic welfare to fishing dependent communities. Innovative approaches to assess data-limited fisheries have been developed and can assist with restoring stocks to biomass levels that achieve higher yields, increase economic opportunities, and promote ecosystem resiliency. However, there is a lack... more
