Scientific advice in support of the CFP in the Baltic Sea and North Sea EU waters. SC07: Climate change and the common fisheries policy adaptation and building resilience to the effects of climate change on fisheries and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from fishing (39731)

Project Details

Description

This technical proposal relates to Specific Contract No. 7 – “Climate change and the common Fisheries Policy: adaptation and building resilience to the effects of climate change on fisheries and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from fishing” under the before mentioned FWC, which has the objective to assess opportunities towards reducing the carbon footprint of the marine wild capture sector, while maintaining the viability, sustainability and resilience of the fishing sector.

The specific tasks under this Specific Contract (SC07) were defined as:
- Task 0: Project management.
- Task 1: Impact mitigation and resilience. The aim of Task 1 is to assess the resilience of the fisheries systems in the Baltic Sea, North Sea and Black Sea to short-term, climate-driven stress, and investigate how the current management regime in place within the framework of the CFP is robust to them.
- Task 2: Fishing strategies for improving energy use efficiency. The overarching objective of Task 2 will be to evaluate to which extent fishing strategies for rebuilding stocks can help making different fishing activities improving their energy use andefficiency, decrease fisheries highly dependent on fuel use and increase their profitability along with stable yields.
- Task 3: Reducing GHG emissions by technical means. The main objective of Task 3 is to review the technical and scientific literature to provide the basic information and data needed to assess the potential for reducing fisheries’ GHG emissions by technical means.
