A Fundamental Consideration for the Fishery Environmental Impact Evaluation Using the Matrix Network Method

  • T. Otsuki
Conference paper


One example of the fishery environmental impact evaluation using the Matrix Network (M.N.) method is presented and discussed. The M.N. method is thought as method that can quantatively predict and evaluate the impact scales, which various development actions in the sea will have an influence on the fishery environment and marine ecosystem. And, it is said that the characteristics of this method are found in being able to clarify the causal relations of impacts using the matrix at each step, and in the simplicity of calculation that the final prediction values are obtained by calculating their matrices of impact transmissions in order.
