This project has completed the development of an innovative multicriterion decision-making methodology to provide management advice for data-poor, artisanal fisheries in developing countries. The method applies Bayesian decision analysis. All analyses have explicit risks with the optimum action maximizing the expected utility. The method focuses on rapid inexpensive assessment methods to initiate adaptive management.
