Bioeconomic modeling and the management of capture and culture fisheries

Bioeconomic models are quantitative models characterized by the fact that they integrated the natural and thehuman sides of the fisheries equation, linking biological and economic elements. Given the principally biological tradition of fisheries science, this linking may be considered a quatum leap in fisheries analysis. In this article, theconcept of bioeconomic modeling and the challenges for this modeling in the context of tropical fisheries and aquaculture are highlighted.
