Catch quota project 2010 (38787)

Project Details


The aim of the project is further development and test of Catch Quota Management (CQM) systems in Danish fisheries by the use of electronic monitoring systems. Furthermore, to test whether electronic monitoring – video and sensor recordings – can provide the necessary documentation to support a CQM system.

In addition the project will illustrate whether full documentation of catches can support implementation and certification and traceability solutions which requires linkage to project dealing with these issues.

From January 2010 the European Council has adopted possibilities for EU Members States to conduct trials on catch quota management on cod in the North Sea, the Skagerrak and the Kattegat.

As the Danish Government has worked intensively for the implementation of CQM in the new Common Fisheries Policy (to be implemented from 2013 and onwards) the project should also facilitate international cooperation on European level to set up common standards for CQM data collection, data processing, data exchange and data base development.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua.
