Abstract

We attempt to develop a system dynamics model that describes exploitations in Thailand fishing industry. We make an extension on the original fish bank model by Saeed et al (2018) to further elaborate on the structure for exploited labor. After we simulate the developed model with information about Thailand fishing industry in 2016-2018, the result suggests that Thailand should maintain the current level of inspection effectiveness, but should reduce bust costs for having illegal fishing vessels and exploited labor to maintain fishing activities in Thailand. Then, we create the application to play this new fish bank game that includes exploited labor based on our extended model.
