Title: FISHING WITHIN THE LIMITS: A SUSTAINABLE FISHING MODEL
Authors: Leibowitz, Brett

Abstract: The understanding and regulation of fisheries is continually evolving. Typically, previous regulation has only focused on the targeted species population, however this does not account for the destruction of the surrounding marine habitats or the depletion of other species caught as bycatch. This thesis takes a holistic approach by implementing a sustainable fishing system that minimizes the habitat damage as well as the amount of bycatch caught, while maximizing the amount of the targeted species that can be harvested without depleting the population over time.
