We also extend the method to more realistic scenarios. We allow agents to competitively choose what strategy to adopt and check whether COIN can co-exist with other strategies in an evolutionary stable configuration, thereby implicitly mimicking the role of defectors in the community. We find that the stable balance between fully selfish agents and COIN depends subtly on the ratio of instantaneous demand to available resource. This suggests this ratio could be used for management purposes as an indicator of the level of resource exploitation.
We also notice that COIN performance is extremely robust to uncertain information, especially when longer records of historical catch are accounted for. Finally, when agents carry out a prediction of future resource dynamics, COIN is able to find a reasonable balance between resource exploitation and resource conservation, which greatly enhances the likelihood of the resource to recover from possible crashes.
