In our System Dynamics classes and workshops we are using a simulation
game called "Fish Banks Ltd.". It is a role-playing simulation about the
principles of sustainable management for natural resources. It is based on
a Systems Dynamics model. We are using an archaic version of the game (I
think it is written in Basic) and I don't know whether there are any later

As the contact info I only have a phone no ( 603- 862-21 86) and the name
"National Diffusion Network" (I think it is a program of the U.S.
Department of Education). I hope you can make some sense of it.
