Shaping ecosystem based fisheries management


Shaping ecosystem based fisheries management

The SEAwise overall objective is to provide a fully operational approach for European Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management based on persistent networks and co- designed innovation.

SEAwise overcomes the four major challenges by addressing four specific objectives using state of the art risk assessment methodology:

  1. Build a network of stakeholders, advisory bodies, decision makers and scientists to co-design key priorities and approaches to EBFM and to ensure SEAwise’s continued impact long after the project period.
  2. Assemble a new knowledge base on European fisheries interactions with social and ecological systems that integrates scientist and stakeholder experience based knowledge.
  3. Develop predictive models of fisheries interactions with social and ecological systems to evaluate, select and implement EBFM strategies across Europe accounting for changes in the environment and use of marine space.
  4. Provide ready-for-uptake advice for EBFM for Mediterranean, western and northern European waters.
