The Fish Banks Ltd board game is the “Original” Renewable Resource Management Simulation Game developed by Dennis Meadows, co-author of “Limits to Growth.”
Fish Banks is a role-playing, board game where teams of players manage and operate their own fishing companies. Players step into the role of captains and crew members, and compete against other fishing companies. Each fishing company begins each game with equal cash, fishing boats, and technology. Together the team players strategize about buying and selling ships, where to fish, how best to manage fleets without depleting fish stocks all while in competition with neighboring teams. The game, which incorporates variables such as deep sea and coastal fishing, informs people about careful and efficient use of natural resources.
