Protecting bycaught species in mixed fisheries (PROBYFISH) (39549)

Project Details


PROBYFISH aims to develop a modelling framework and a support tool to assess whether proposals for regionalised management measures in the North Sea, Southwestern and Northwestern waters are in accordance with the objectives of the CFP. The project approaches this aim by developing agreed and robust methods to define target and bycatch species, identifying the bycatch species for which TAC management of target species would be sufficient, identifying measures that will lead to the sustainable development of the bycatch stocks (technical, spatial etc), producing agreed reference levels to safeguard stocks and combining the results of all activities in a user-friendly and flexible tool.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua and is funded by EU Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).
