Simple models can be used to show the relative consequences of alternative management strategies. For the purposes of ecosystem-based fishery management, a classification scheme is available to characterize operational models that have been used in various locations. This includes multispecies interaction models, bycatch models, and age-structured trophodynamic models. Each require different data, and it is typically the case that data gaps limit applicability in real-time management settings. Ecosystem modeling requirements are universal.

The Reauthorized Magnuson–Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act calls for expanded attention to ecosystem principles in fishery conservation and management actions, and such principles have been advocated by the US Commission on Ocean Policy and the Pew Ocean Commission.

Undoubtedly, we may not all see eye to eye on all of the details. But it is important that we reach some basic agreement so that we can move forward, and through an adaptive approach, improve management of the region’s fisheries as our understanding grows. As we debate these issues, let us be reminded of the Hawaiian proverb: I ka ‘¯ olelo ka make, i ka ‘¯ olelo ke ola. ” This proverb relates to the importance of speech in old Hawaiian. Everyone should be mindful, speak honestly and compassionately, and truly mean and be responsible for his or her discourse.
