The PANDORA project contributes to ensuring the long-term sustainability of European fisheries by advancing current models for fish stock assessments. In cooperation with regional stakeholders, PANDORA will create new biological knowledge, develop fisheries management scenarios and policy recommendations, and provide an online tool box for fishers, fisheries managers, decision- and policy-makers across Europe
​​​

Project objectives:​
1. Create more realistic assessments and projections of changes in fisheries resources (30 stocks) by utilizing new biological knowledge (spatial patterns, environmental drivers, food-web interactions and density-dependence) including, for the first time, proprietary data sampled by pelagic fishers. 

2. Advice on how to secure long-term sustainability of EU fish stocks (maximum sustainable/”pretty good” and economic yields) and elucidate tradeoffs between profitability and number of jobs in their (mixed demersal, mixed pelagic and single species) fisheries fleets. Provide recommendations on how to stabilize the long-term profitability of European fisheries.

3. Develop a public, internet-based resource tool box (PANDORAs Box of Tools), including assessment modelling and stock projections code, economic models, and region- and species-specific decision support tools; increase ownership and contribution opportunities of the industry to the fish stock assessment process through involvement in data sampling and training in data collection, processing and ecosystem-based fisheries management.

This project has received funding from the ​​​European Commission's Horizon 2020​​ research and innovation programme 
under Grant 
​ Agreement No 773713.
