1 Fisheries Performance Indicators A Guest Lecture Prepared for the United Nations University Fisheries Training Program Reykjavik, Iceland Gunnar Knapp Professor of Economics Institute of Social and Economic Research Anchorage, Alaska USA January 2013

2 How can we MEASURE how well a fishery is managed and how well it is doing?

3 How can we MEASURE how well a fishery is managed and how well it is doing? This is not an easy question!!! Fisheries are managed for multiple objectives. –We need multiple measures –Fisheries may be performing well by some measures and poorly by other measures –How should we “average” different measures? Collecting and analyzing fisheries data is expensive and takes time –particularly if the data need to be comparable between fisheries and countries! What measures are needed—and how detailed and reliable they need to be—depends on how we plan to use them.

4 My goal for this lecture... To get you to think about the problem of designing fishery performance indicators To describe an ongoing project to develop fishery performance indicators To have you evaluate a fishery you are familiar with according to these performance indicators To critique these performance indicators: –What is good about them? –What is bad about them? –How would you change them?

5 The “Fisheries Performance Indicators” (FPI) Project... Objective is to develop simple, practical and useful “fisheries performance indicators” (FPIs) which: –Provide useful indicators of the performance of a fishery with respect to multiple objectives –Can be developed for any kind of fishery in any country –Are comparable across fisheries and countries –Can be used to analyze how different factors affect fishery success –Information can be developed easily, quickly, and at low cost by one or a few fishery specialists –Are easy to understand and work with Designed by three economists –James L. Anderson (World Bank) –Jingie Chu (World Bank) –Chris Anderson (University of Washington) Tested by about thirty fishery specialists for fisheries in many developed and developing countries

6 On a piece of paper please write: Your name (or alias) Your country The name of a fishery in your country you will attempt to evaluate using some of the fishery performance indicators

7 Your name: ________________ Your country: __________________ Fishery which you attempted to evaluate using selected “fishery performance indicators”: ________________________________________________________ Performance indicator Performance indicator ranking How well did you understand what this indicator was asking for? How easy or difficult for you was it to assign a value for this indicator?

8 “Overfishing or Rebuilding”

9 Output performance indicator: Overfishing or Rebuilding A. Stock is not overfished or is rebuilt B.Growth overfished, but stable or rebuilding C.Growth overfished and experiencing growth overfishing D.Recruit overfished, but stable or rebuilding E.Recruit overfished and experiencing recruit overfishing

10 How well did you understand what this indicator was asking for? A. I understood exactly what it was asking for B.I understood fairly well what it was asking for C.I had only a vague understanding of what it was asking for D.I didn’t understand at all what it was asking for Mean = 1.95

11 How easy or difficult for you was it to assign a value for this indicator? A.Very easy B.Somewhat easy C.Somewhat hard D.Very hard Mean = 2.00

12 “Fishery wages compared to non- fishery wages”
