Economist Marcus Hartley and ecologist Trevor A. Branch of the Measuring the Effects of Catch Shares project team made presentations last Thursday to the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s Groundfish Management Team (GMT) and Groundfish Advisory Subpanel (GAP) during the PFMC’s meeting in Spokane, Washington.
Their presentations focused on the toolkit of economic, ecological, social, and governance indicators provided by the project and included a brief demonstration of the interactive dashboard at www.CatchShareIndicators.org. We appreciate the interest that GMT and GAP members showed in these informational resources. We will be using feedback from the GMT and GAP to further enhance the indicator reports and interactive tools in upcoming releases.
