THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF FARFISH

FarFish is based on a concept that can be broken into three interlinking parts, where the part 1 will advance knowledge on biological, ecological, economic and social factors relevant to EU fisheries in the case studies.  While part 2 will provide guidelines for making management plans for EU fleets fishing in Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements and international waters. The guidelines will be tested and validated through development of tailor-made management plans for case studies in close collaboration with stakeholders. The development of the management plans will be supported by Decision Support Tools. The applicability of the management plans will be evaluated according to a framework that will also be developed within FarFish. Lastly, part 3 will be devoted to dissemination, knowledge transfer and capacity building amongst different stakeholders within and affected by the EU fisheries in Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements and international waters.
