The Data-Limited Methods Toolkit (DLMtool) is an R package that uses computer simulations of real-world fisheries to help scientists and managers with three common objectives:

  1. Identifying effective management methods given the uncertainties associated with data-limited fisheries
  2. Computing explicit management recommendations based on the currently available data
  3. Prioritizing future data collection programs
