Data-Limited Methods Toolkit (DLMtool) The Data-Limited Methods Toolkit (DLMtool) is a freely-available, open-source software package that uses computer simulations of real-world fisheries to help scientists and managers with three common objectives: 1) identifying the most effective management methods given the uncertainties associated with data-limited fisheries, 2) computing explicit management guidance based on the best-available data, and 3) prioritizing future data collection programs.
