Economic Forces

Fisher dynamics as well as affected fish populations will all depend on an array of economic forces based on historical data as well as future predictions.  These forces include such factors as fluctuating fish prices, fuel prices, operation costs, possible competition and cooperation between vessels, presence of fish, environmental and weather factors, restricted fishing areas and regulations, and technological change.

The effects of three scenarios on the sustainability of the Eastern Pacific Tuna Fishery will be investigated in greater detail:

By studying the economic forces behind the Eastern Pacific Tuna Fishery, and how they interact and influence both fisher and fish dynamics, Fishscape may aid in managing the fishery and improving conditions for fish, fishers and consumers alike.
