In this study a model approach was employed to estimate and predict the dynamics of highly migratory albacore tuna populations in the South Pacific and Atlantic oceans. This study successfully explored the capacity of previously used model to predict complex spatial dynamics of highly migratory species that are consistent with 30-year-long data and existing knowledge. The quantitative approach presented could be used to assist stock assessment and to improve management advice internationally.
