Capacity, F and Effort

Status: Completed (December 2008)
Coordinator: Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine


CAFÉ aimed to carry out a comprehensive study of capacity and effort metrics and model their relationships to fishing mortality, and the economic drivers for capacity development. The project had six main objectives:

  • Review the validity of measurements of fishing
  • capacity and effort
  • Compile a database of capacity, effort and mortality information
  • Identify appropriate measurements for empirical modelling of these factors
  • Identify the factors that drive change in the capacity of the case study fisheries over time
  • Determine important economic and biological factors
  • Examine the effect of applying the models​​
