A framework for fleet and area based fisheries management

Status: Completed (March 2009)
Coordinator: AZTI-Tecnalia

​​​​​​​​​​​​AFRAME developed a framework for fleet and area-based fishery management through case studies of the North Sea (data rich, species poor); the English Channel, Celtic Sea and the Bay of Biscay (intermediate); and the Mediterranean (species rich, data poor). Each of these studies :

  • Developed and tested frameworks for describing fleet activity in terms of the fisheries in which the fleet participated, and how it allocated its effort across these regions
  • Developed an indicator approach to summarising information and presenting advice in relation to multi-fleet and multi-species fisheries
  • Analysed stakeholder perceptions and institutional implications of a shift to fleet- and area-based management​
