David Die SailingMy main research interest is the development of mathematical and statistical models (both for prediction and estimation) to support natural resource management. My research is therefore geared towards giving scientifically based resource management advice and help quantitative auditing of management performance. I have a special interest in developing an understanding of the mechanisms that are key to the sustainability of fisheries. I have worked for 18 years on research devoted to the assessment and management of tropical fisheries worldwide (Oceania, Asia, Latin America and Africa) and my research was instrumental in the development of major management changes (fishing closures, fleet capacity reductions) in several fisheries. Presently, I am doing work in the assessment of tuna, billfish and reef-fish fisheries in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. I have current collaborative research links with scientists in the main fishery Institutions in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Oceania. David’s Articles/Posts.
