Shiny App


Slick is a decision analysis tool that presents the outcomes of candidate harvest strategies across various states of nature, accounting for uncertainty. Slick is interactive and allows users to filter results live in order to explore robustness and performance.

While Slick can be applied to any decision analysis context it was specifically designed to investigate the performance of harvest strategies tested by management strategy evaluation (MSE). Slick can be used for any MSE process, but the current version includes a demonstration example, as well as preliminary results from the MSEs for Atlantic bluefin tuna and North Atlantic swordfish.

Representatives from @pewtrusts and EU Parliament are calling for ICCAT to build upon past success and implement a #harveststrategy for bluefin tuna that would "set a global precedent for modernized management" @GrantlyG #tunafortomorrow https://tinyurl.com/4j93xpbb

Join the GTA and @pewtrusts on 27th October for a webinar discussion to inform and explain what is at stake at this year’s Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) meeting and how it may influence your tuna sourcing.

North Pacific Albacore are currently not overfished or subject to overfishing in #WCPFC waters.

But why wait for Albacore numbers to dwindle before adopting a harvest strategy? The WCPFC Northern Committee must act next week to secure this stock's future. @GrantlyG
