Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Within the second framework programme for research and technological development the European Community decided to carry out a research programme with the objective of providing a scientific basis for the effective implementation of the common fishery policy.
The fisheries and aquaculture research programme (FAR) was adopted in 1987 for the period 1988 to 1992 and takes into account:
the implementation of a Community policy of conservation and management of fisheries resources;
the necessity to facilitate the adaptation of Community fleets to the new conditions of fishing;
the development of aquaculture production in order to increase the overall fish supply in the Community, specially for these species in which the Community has a trade deficit;
the need for integration of production and processing to promote the optimum utilization of fishery resources and improve the quality of products.
The FAR programme operates in 2 ways: by providing financial support for specific research projects and by coordination of research activities at Community level.
Coordination activities are aimed at improving the cost effectiveness of fisheries research in the Community by facilitating the exchange of results, ideas, techniques and researchers, avoiding duplication of effort and resources.
Synopses of FAR R&D projects are provided in 2 volumes: Volume I for projects concerning aquaculture and upgrading of fishery products; and Volume II for projects concerning fisheries management and fishing technology. nology.
