WORKING PAPER SERIES - Working Paper #2022 - 04 - A rich analysis of the economic, social and
2 November 2022
The ECS is rich in nutrients with the influences of the alongshore current, the Yellow Sea cold water mass and the Kuroshio Current, providing the diverse fauna and flora in the ECS. [...] Ecosim policy search scenarios To address the objectives of this paper, we develop and apply Ecopath with Ecosim Models (ecopath.org) of the EEZ of Mauritania and the ecosystems of the ECS and SCS. [...] 4.1 How much fishing effort is stimulated due to subsidies? In the next sections, we present the results from our modelling exercise for the fisheries of the Mauritanian EEZ, and the large marine ecosystems of the ECS and SCS. [...] In addition, the initial condition and state of the ecosystem and the fish stocks it contains at the beginning of the analysis matters. [...] Policy implications and conclusion remarks We have built EwE models for three diverse ecosystems capturing the current state of the fish and fisheries dependent on them, the economics of the fisheries as well as the social state of the fisheries.
