Marine Ecosystem in French Guiana
This case study relies on a multi-species and multi-fleet model. This small-scale fishery constitutes a challenging example with high fish biodiversity, several non selective fleets and a potentially increasing local food demand due to demographic growth.
Several contrasted fishing scenarios including status quo, and viable strategies are simulated. They are compared from the viewpoints of both biodiversity preservation and socio-economic performance.Location:
