Fuzzy Folk,

I am busy putting together a paper on fuzzy logic for use in expert / decision
support systems for (pelagic) fisheries management - in particular the
forecasting of fish recruitment using biological and enevironmental
indicators.
I (we...) have developed thresholds for these indicators and now I am applying
fuzzy logic in their evaluation against the parameter time series.

If anybody has any experience with such an application, I'd like to hear from
you. Also, I have only found 2 references to if you know of any published
papers that sound directly applicable (see below), so if you know of anything
else that would be of interest, let me know!

I look forwrad to hearing from you.
