Tuna migration models


A migration game model is suggested to resolve adaptive migration in direction of increasing fitness over a complex global network of distant habitats. Many factors contribute to the migration process of highly migratory species and of primary importance are individual and collective dynamics regulating intra-specific competition and habitat selection processes. When applied to the Atlantic bluefin tuna the model predicts patterns of migration resembling those commonly observed for this species and predicts new migratory routes under future climate change scenarios.
