Showcase effective solutions
Rights based management of fisheries is already in place in many European Member States. We are working to extend the number and range of examples to deliver conservation outcomes and meet local economic and social goals. We help to share best practice Europe-wide through knowledge-sharing events, fishery exchanges, networking and targeted communications.
Make fisheries climate resilient
Spur the design and uptake of new governance and management approaches that are resilient to climate and political change by identifying key challenges and sparking vital discussions among science, policy, management and industry leaders. We will also undertake new scientific and bio-economic research and apply tools – such as ecosystem-based and Game Theoretical approaches – to fully understand and navigate Europe’s fishing future under climate change.
Maintain and advance robust policies
Support the design and implementation of policies at EU and Member State level that set the standard for sustainable fishing, enable fishermen to prosper and enable them to innovate, while upholding the conservation mandates of the CFP.
