EU-FP6 Funded Marine Project Reports


Critical Interactions BEtween Species and their Implications for a PreCAUtionary FiSheries Management in a variable Environment  - a Modelling Approach

Status: Completed (February 2007)
Coordinator: Universität Hamburg - UniHH

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The sustainable management of European fisheries requires an adaptive approach that takes into account the long-term dynamics of the entire marine ecosystem so as to protect the biodiversity of our seas.

  • BECAUSE investigated the interaction between predator and prey, and the shifts in their relative populations
  • The project also looked into how fishing affects the balance of the marine food chain
  • The interactions targeted for investigation included sandeel/predator fish, predators and prey of cod, and hake/prey fish
