Multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) applications in fishery management
This paper provides an up-to-date review of multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) applications in fishery management since the last review conducted by Mardle and Pascoe in 1999. The review will primarily draw on the published literature in the English language. This review will also include the author's experience in developing MCDM models to assist policy decision making in fishery management both in Hawaii and Norway. Two multi-objective programming models and two applications of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) – separately developed for Hawaii and Norway – will be highlighted.
