Working Group 5: Socio-economic aspects and management strategies

Key Scientific Questions

  • What are the socio-economic pressures on, and context of, tuna fisheries?
  • How have fisheries organisations (whether local, national, regional, or international) addressed the impacts of climate variability and climate change?
  • What are the flows in capital and knowledge among the world's large fisheries and how do they respond to variability?
  • Can we evaluate how useful are the fisheries management decision support tools?
