Fisheries Resilience Index
The Fisheries Resilience Index is a self-assessment tool developed for fishery industry leaders and businesses. The guide can help businesses and communities identify vulnerabilities to coastal storms and climate change; it can also help people understand risk related to natural disasters, man-made disasters, and/or economic downturns.
The guide provides a simple and inexpensive method of predicting if individual fishing businesses and the regional fisheries industry are prepared to maintain operations during and after disasters. Completing the Fisheries Resilience Index will assist the fishing industry in developing actions for long-term resilience.
