Fish Banks Packet
Author(s): System Dynamics in Education Project Subject: Cross-Curricular
  A curriculum to use with Fish Banks, Ltd., a simulation game developed and marketed by Dennis Meadows. Includes: a) Renewable Resource Depletion: A Systems Approach to the Tragedy of the Commons (Matthew C. Halbower). Supplemental materials for Fish Banks, Ltd. This paper is designed to accompany the Fish Banks game. It explains system concepts, proposes exercises, and describes the Fish Banks model. Requires a Macintosh computer and STELLA software. b) The Tragedy of the Commons (Garret Hardin). A discussion of the problems in the use of common resources. (Paper only: c) Fishing in the News. Assorted newspaper clippings to indicate the relevance of Fish Banks for today's fishing industry.)

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. Locally rational choices (such as trying to maximize your own catch of fish) can lead to problems for everyone when the resource disappears. A "Tragedy of the Commons" simulation such as Fish Banks can help students to understand that the structure of a system gives rise to the observed behavior pattern. It does no good to place blame on others when actors in the system are causing their own problems!
