AWARD OF THE CONTRACT “STUDY ON ECOSYSTEM-BASED APPROACHES APPLIED TO FISHERIES MANAGEMENT UNDER THE COMMON FISHERIES POLICY FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN AND THE BLACK SEAS”
COFREPECHE in consortium with MRAG, and 7 other European consulting firms and Universities have been awarded the contract “Study on ecosystem-based approaches applied to fisheries management under the Common Fisheries Policy for the Mediterranean and the Black Seas”. This study will start on the 4th of January 2021 for an overall duration of 24 months.
This project has been launched by the Executive Agency for SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises), EASME is managing on behalf of the European Commission several UE programs for SMEs in the field of innovation, environment, climate action, energy, and maritime affairs.
The goal of this project is to fill in the knowledge gap that is still existing on the actual implementation of the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM) in the EU by using sound scientific knowledge. The objectives are:
- to investigate elements of EAFM that have either already been implemented in practice or steps have been taken towards implementation under the CFP to date;
- to elaborate on the scientific basis of EAFM and related scientific advisory products available, whether these have been used or not;
- to identify best practices, facilitating conditions and obstacles to further EAFM implementation and classify the various identified EAFM measures on the basis of their characteristics.
