CABFISHMAN is coordinated by representatives from a number of the project’s research partners. Taking charge of the project’s facilitation, our Coordination Team has the ultimate responsibility for managing CABFISHMAN’s budget. This team enables productive collaboration across the project – ensuring that all parties, internal and external, are working towards common goals. Through this, they help deliver recommendations that will allow a smooth transition to an ecosystem-based co-management program for the Northeast Atlantic.
The group holds regular meetings with the leaders of each division of CABFISHMAN’s work, making regular checks on progress and development. In addition, our project coordinators call an annual meeting to monitor progression towards CABFISHMAN’s long-term objectives and ensure that the project remains true to its core commitments:
Our project coordinators work closely with the Communication Team to maintain regular contact with stakeholders and to share outputs and progress updates throughout the project’s lifetime.

To understand practices used by small-scale fisheries across the Northeast Atlantic, we are analysing and evaluating existing fisheries data to create a resource for all stakeholders in the form of a map depicting small-scale fisheries activity.
Our Engagement Team transforms the results of the CABFISHMAN project into practical information that stakeholders can use. This team aims to quickly and efficiently develop methods for more sustainable fishing in the Northeast Atlantic.
Our analysis looks beyond fisheries as a source of food to consider their natural and cultural heritage values, allowing stakeholders to account for the real socioeconomic impact of fisheries and marine ecosystems across the region.
