"Advancing the Science of Knowledge Use: Mechanisms, Applications and Gaps"

This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.

In this project, we systematically test hypothesized patterns of exploitation, collapse, international markets, and bilateral trade agreements using paired comparative analysis of fisheries in two global databases (RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database and the FAO Landings Database). We then add detail and context to these patterns using a case-study in North western Mexico. Our results will provide empirical evidence connecting globalized trade to fisheries status, will generate indicators for positive and negative effects of international trade and with that will help managers design fisheries management tools that account for ecological and economic factors in the context of globalized trade.
