​​​​​​​​​​​SLIME reviewed the information available and identified options for a coherent European management strategy. 

SLIME project:

  • Described suitable models for the evaluation of the eel stock, quantifying recruitment and escapement and demonstrating compliance, or otherwise, with escapement limits and targets
  • Applied test case datasets for different life stages and catchment/fishery types
  • Formulated advice for a scientific framew​ork based on the outcomes from the various models

​​IMARES was established in 2006, as a result of the merger of​​ RIVO (the Netherlands Institute for Fisheries Research), elements of Alterra and the Department of Ecological Risks within the TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research).​​​​
