With a total population size below 70 individuals, the Maui dolphins are ranked as critically endangered. To avoid further collapse, commercial fishery activities would need to be more strictly regulated.

This project aims at developing an agent-based model of the interaction between Maui dolphins and commercial fisheries in New Zealand to support regulations aimed at the survival of this species.
