Diagnostic Scorecard

Developing a deep understanding about the condition of a fishery across bio-ecological, governance and management, markets and finance, and socio-cultural systems is important for determining challenges and opportunities to sustainable management. The Diagnostic Scorecard is used to assess and characterize the condition of several key fishery components that are critical for successful and sustainable fisheries management.

Once completed, the scorecard provides a visual assessment of the performance of the fishery across various components. Using the outputs of this tool, fishery practitioners can recognize where to focus reform efforts in order to have the greatest impact and address underperforming components.
