Marine fisheries are highly complex and stochastic. A simulation model, therefore, is required. Simulation-based optimization utilizes the simulation model in obtaining the objective function values of a particular fishing schedule. The decision support system for fishery management will assist the government agencies and the fishing industry to use sound data and management science techniques in making policy decisions for fishing activities. Transferable rights to fish have proved a reliable and effective means of creating incentives to conserve marine resources. By strengthening individual fishing rights under flexible quota management systems make a significant contribution to conserving fish stocks, to reducing excess capacity and to raising the profitability of the fisheries industry.
