Participatory modeling to enhance understanding and consensus within fisheries management: the Baltic herring case

Kuvaus

An important factor influencing fishers’ compliance with fisheries regulation is a
feeling of legitimacy of the policy. Legitimacy includes belief that the management is
based on reliable advice. This requires a two-way process rather than a one-way flow
of information. We involve stakeholders in the development of biological models for
Baltic Sea herring fishery and the evaluation of policy advice using these models. The
study concentrates in factors behind the negative biomass trend and poor growth
rates of the herring stocks. Alternative model structures are built based on current
knowledge of the stakeholders. A “meta-model” is built as a synthesis of the
different stakeholder models. This is compared to a model provided by biological
research and discussed with the stakeholders. Differences between the views are
analysed: how well the scientific model covers the views of the stakeholders, and
how the inclusion and linking of additional variables help the stakeholders link the
different risk components to their own argumentation? Using a model as an
interactive forum can enhance common understanding about the fishery system and
consensus about management actions. Participatory approach to modelling may
reduce criticism about the use of models in natural resource policy advice where the
assumptions and uncertainties are difficult to communicate. It may be a way to
involve stakeholders in decision-making processes including a demand for increased
transparency and understanding.
