Abstract or Summary
  • The artisanal fishery in Senegal is characterized by composite biological, technological economical dynamics in interaction. A computer model of the exploitation is presented to study the relationships existing between resources, production, trading, consumption (dynamic approach). The model is developed using a systemic approach. The computer transcription utilizes multi-agent formalism (artificial intelligence) based on representation of the actors choices, actions and interactions. The model of the exploitation is composed of 11 categories or types: fisherman, fish-trader, consumer, factory, fishing zone, port, market, fish, stock, species fishing and vehicle. Each object is autonomous, able to receive and send information to other objects. These information induce for fishermen and fish-traders multiple criteria choices and actions (moving, fishing, selling, buying). Transactions between actors modify the species prices in the various ports and markets. Combination of the different actions produces fluxes of fishes, currencies, human actors and work. Several variable types, local or global can be traced. The global dynamics (fluxes) is obtained from a local representation (objects). This approach permits to observe and analyze some complex behaviors of the exploitation.
