Multispecies fisheries management-methodological development and research - MF0306

R&D Summary Objectives:- Develop models which help predict the consequences of various Management options on the complex multispecies and multifleet fisheries systems. Key customer purpose:- Ensure that the UK has a direct involvement in the development of appropriate fish stock management regimes within the EC through participation in the multispecies modelling programme on which scientific advice from ICES and STECF is based.
To define, and develop models of fisheries systems required for advising on the CFP. To develop required methodologies for the estimation of the parameters of fish stocks that are essential for management advice. The listed targets give currently expected obligations but new targets will arise in the life of this project given the requirement to address questions of management relevance.
