Ed Camp is an interdisciplinary quantitative scientist who studies the governance of fisheries and aquaculture. Fisheries and aquaculture governance encompasses to the suite of institutions, actors, processes, and objectives affecting fish that humans are care about. In practice, the Camp lab focuses mostly on understanding how decisions about fisheries and aquaculture regulations, and management actions affect fish and the people that depend on them. This work is inherently interdisciplinary, melding ecological, social and decision science, and economic methods to develop quantitative and statistical models for evaluating current governance actions, or developing new approaches. The context for this research is diverse, including recreational, commercial, and subsistence wild fisheries and aquaculture systems from around the world.
