operating models definition: A core component of the management strategy evaluation (MSE) process used to test a harvest strategy. The OM simulates all relevant aspects of the harvest strategy so that the effects of alternative strategies can be measured and compared. Typically, the OM includes the resource/ecosystem dynamics, the observation process, the assessment process, the management decision process and the implementation of the management decision. Uncertainties in each of these processes are included. Multiple OMs based on varying assumptions are often used within a single MSE process to test the robustness of alternative harvest strategies.

What will happen if the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission does not adopt #harveststrategies?

Fisheries that support 73% of all @MSCecolabel certified tuna could face suspension. #WCPFC http://ow.ly/W5Z250Gr6dN

"The stocks are in healthy shape, and that’s why it’s important to put in these harvest strategies now when tuna species are not up against the wall and it hasn’t become a crisis" says @MSCecolabel's Bill Holden regarding #WCPFC & WCPO tuna.

The @MSCecolabel warns:

Adopt harvest strategies at #WCPFC by the 2022 Commission meeting... or MSC-certified WCPO fisheries will face suspension in 2023.

Will decision-makers take note?
