CABFISHMAN is working to combine knowledge on fisheries management across the Northeast Atlantic in order to advance the assessment of ecosystem services and the economic capacity of fishing grounds in the region. To do this we are:
Our work on fisheries management allows stakeholders to take progressive steps towards crafting a management strategy that prioritises marine ecological wellbeing and engenders ongoing prosperity for small-scale fisheries.
Lead partner: AZTI Foundation
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.
We are designing an interactive tool which will allow users to describe and map small scale-fishing activity. By placing the Northeast Atlantic’s small-scale fishing within a wider context, this tool will facilitate fisheries management, education, public awareness, and habitat protection.
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.
