Project Details


The objectives of the research project are to:
1. Determine stock-recruitment relationships for Baltic cod and sprat in relation to key environmental factors influencing the production of viable spawn and the survival of early life
history stages.
2. Improve short-term predictions of stock development by integrating recruitment estimates based on the present status of the stock and its biotic and abiotic environment.
3. Develop predictive recruitment models for medium- to long-term forecasts of stock development under different environmental and fishery scenarios.
4. Estimate biological management reference points, critical stock limits and target spawning stock sizes based on stock-recruitment relationships and stock development simulation models, and considering the precautionary approach for fisheries management.
