Project Details


This study will provide a review of the legal settings providing the context for EAFM and guidance on how EAFM can be made operational by means of management measures, the ecosystem challenges these measures try to resolve and an overview of best practices that can increase the likelihood that EAFM is implemented for fisheries under CFP. The study will demonstrate the scientific underpinning of the measures and implemented methods to work towards an EAFM. Given the large number of fisheries and geographical scope of the study, specific attention will be paid to knowledge and data gaps, overall progress of implementing an EAFM and illustrating best practices so to help recommending future steps to operationalise an EAFM.
