In the fishing industry, labor trafficking, environmental sustainability, aquaculture, and socio-economic development interact interdependently and form a complex system with multiple decision makers. These include labor markets, governments, and consumers who often have conflicting goals and different types of information to act on. A policy created by one decision-making body very often unintentionally affects other areas.
Khalid Saeed, Matt Kammer-Kerwick, students Palawat Busaranuvong, Wai Khumwang, and I created a systems dynamics simulation game "Fishy Banks" to evaluate policy implications on labor trafficking, fish stocks,and industry profit.
Below is a short video about Fishy Banks, and the game can be played online.
