JANUS - Modeling an Interdisciplinary Early Warning System for Future Fisheries Scenarios: A socio-bio-economic value-chain evaluation (Researcher project - HAVKYST)

Primary and secondary objectives of the project

Primary:

1) Model to the extent possible the interaction between two species: Calanus finmarchicus and P. periphylla. 2) Incorporate socio-economic variables
from the Trondheimfjordens fisheries value chain, including also sometimes softer socio-economic data into interaction models
3) Create four plausible scenarios centered on the Periphylla-redfeed relationship.
4) Provide management advice for a current fisheries management question: what is the most rational way from a socio-economic perspective to manage P. periphylla?
5) Lay the foundation for a prototype Early Warning System for fisheries management based on multidisciplinary future scenarios.

Secondary:

1) Advance desired but difficult goal of ecosystemic management by focusing on two key species.
2) Contribute to the long-standing work of gaining a complete understanding of Trondheimsfjorden ecosystem.
3) Develop scenario construction as a management tools for fisheries, including the use of Bayesian Belief Network.
