Maximising net economic returns from a multispecies fishery (2016 - 2018)$269,771
Description
Achieving maximum net economic returns, or maximum economic yield (MEY), as it has been operationalised in current policy, in fisheries requires two key aspects to be considered. First, some indication of the target is required. That is, what is the optimal level of biomass, effort and harvest level in the fishery? Second, a management instrument and harvest strategy is required that will achieve MEY. Defining a target may not result in it being achieved if the management instrument is not appropriate. Given this, the project will consider four key issues: 1) how do we determine MEY?; 2) How do we know how we are tracking in relation to MEY in data poor fisheries? 3) effectiveness of alternative management approaches to move a fishery towards MEY, particularly when information is limited; and 4) development of a framework to operationalise the methodology developed in this project.

Description
The primary goal of this project is to assess the food security and resilience of the small island fishing communities in Indonesia to socio-environmental changes, in particular to the declining stock of fish due to the increasing number of fishermen in the area.

Economic Impact of Quota Evasion in Commonwealth Fisheries (2014)$24,324
Description
The aim of the project is to construct a matrix of economic impacts of quota evasion on the Commonwealth fishery asset value, as reflected in the Gross Value Product (GVP) and to evaluate a possible market distortion as a result of quota evasion within Commonwealth fisheries at fishery level.
