Vismon is a visual tool for fisheries data analysis. The input is a simulation with two input parameters (the management options) and several output indicators. The purpose of Vismon is to help decision makers to quickly narrow down all possible management options to only few that are agreeable to all stakeholders. Then, a detailed trade-off among the few chosen management options can be performed.
