Pandora aims to use novel insights from ecology and socio-economic theory to improve the management of exploited fish stocks. Such improvements can be economic (higher production, increased efficiency or stability, etc), or in terms of reduced impact of fisheries on marine ecosystems. Within this project we study the consequences of a novel phenomenon in recovering fish stocks, where increased competition leads to slower growth. This means that recovered fish stocks consist of more but smaller and skinnier fish. We study the consequences of this principle for fish stock management.
