### Perfect Knowledge Management

##### By: B. J. Rothschild

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: If in fact O were known - that is, if it were known in advance whether a year class was G, P, or C, then the correct course of action would be obvious (Figure 2). That is a) If O=G, choose H and gain 25 units. b) If O=P, choose L and gain 5 units. c) If O=C, choose Z and gain -5 units. Each action would thus, given that O is known, maximize the return. But, as it is in the real world of fisheries O is never known with certitude. Thus, procedures need to be appli...
