Final Report - ENVIEFH (Environmental approach to essential fish habitat designation)

Project ID: 22466
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the 'Environmental approach to essential fish habitat designation' (ENVIEFH) project. The main objective of the ENVIEFH project was to facilitate the spatial component of fisheries management by applying an environmental approach to the mapping and designation of essential fish habitats in the Mediterranean Sea.

The document refers to the motivation behind the project, its aim and specific objectives, before describing the course of actions in the last two years. Finally, it discusses the project's results and future applications. By using new concepts in fisheries management (the spatiotemporal mapping of EFH as part of the ecosystem-based approach) and new scientific developments (remote sensing, spatial analysis and GIS technologies), ENVIEFH provided the means that enhance the efficacy of technical measures.
