Fishbanks is a web-based, multiplayer renewable resource management and conservation simulation in which participants play the role of fishers tasked with maximizing their net worth as they buy, sell, and build ships; determine fishing locations; and negotiate with competing fisheries. Participants learn about the challenges of managing resources sustainably in a common pool resource setting with realistic resource dynamics.
