Enhancement of the linkage between fishing effort and fishing mortality

Fishing effort was adjusted on the basis of the model developed in previous analyses (Production of a fishing effort model accounting for technological developments and fleets adaptation - Result 32229 of the e-tip), and related to fishing mortality.

Adjusting fishing effort, by means of,
- The metier effect and,
- The indices of tactics and strategies and,
- Selected vessel and gear technologies, generally lead to a substantial gain in the precision of the relationship between fishing mortality and fishing effort.
