We mentioned that the tragedy of the commons is a form of prisoners' dilemma, something we saw back in Chapter
a. We have given you very generic strategies: up, down, left, right. Relabel the matrix so the game applies to fishermen and the tragedy of the commons.

d. Which set of actions is the one and only Nash equilibrium? How would you describe it in terms of these two fishermen?
