Dr Erika Hoshino
Marine Resource Economist
CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere
One of Eriko’s primary interests is to incorporate social and economic dimensions into fishery modelling.
Eriko has over 15 years working experience in fisheries and renewable marine and coastal resources, including 6 years as a fishery consultant at the World Bank (Washington DC), 2 years at IMAG (a UK based consulting firm), and 2 years as a research analyst at the World Resource Institute (Washington DC). She joined CSIRO in early 2016 as a fisheries economist/modeller, and is currently developing prototype Harvest Strategies for Indonesian tuna fisheries, using a simulation-based Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) framework.
Prior to joining CISRO, Eriko was appointed as a post doctoral research fellow with a joint contract between the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics. She was involved with two bioeconomic decision-support tool projects, one on Southern Rock Lobster (SRL) and the other on abalone resources, funded by the Australian Seafood Cooperative Research Centre (CRC). These bioeconomic models are useful in providing economically-sound management advice beyond biological sustainability, and help harvesters and resource managers to make informed business/management decisions.
