The Evolution and Ecology Program (EEP) is developing general approaches for integrated assessments of fishery systems that help reconcile multiple objectives:
Figure 1. Evolutionary sensitivity to harvesting depends on a species’ life history and generation time: long-lived species are the least pre-adapted to high mortalities caused by fishing, but their long generation times make the ensuing evolutionary response slower (click on image to enlarge).
