Abstract
I have recently published two essays on sustainable marine fisheries. In the first (Francis 2002) I explored the concept of sustainability put forward by the environmental historian Arthur McEvoy. In the second (Francis 2003), focused on the Pacific Northwest coastal marine ecosystem, I assert that models can be used both to calculate the numbers of policy and to nudge along new management ideas. I am now working on a third essay that considers: a) how to operationalize McEvoys sustainable fisheries system along the west coast, and b) what new ways of thinking (modeling included) might be required to do so. I will present some rough ideas currently being explored in this draft essay and then engage the audience in a dialogue.
