To guide decision making I am identifying Gulf of Maine ground-fish management objectives, available management actions, and their trade-offs through facilitated stakeholder workshops.
These objectives will be used while conducting a management strategy evaluation to supply decision support to the Gulf of Maine ground-fish managers.
To help communicate results I am creating an interactive web page to display predicted management action outcomes.
Faced with poor documentation of past efforts I am reviewing management strategy evaluations against best decision-making practices to support learning over time.
