Natural variability of a coastal upwelling system and small pelagic fish stocks

Objective

NAT-FISH will analyse and quantify the influence of the natural variability of the Northwest African up welling system on the abundance and distribution of small pelagic fish stocks. It aims at creating an information system, which incorporates environmental monitoring into predictive analysis of the status of fish resources for early inclusion in responsible fisheries management. The project is carried out as a retrospective analysis of environmental data, satellite data and fisheries data. Physical and biological models play significant role in the project. The project is undertaken by the institutions responsible for providing advice on fisheries management in their home countries, assuring that the activities of the project are relevant for institutional tasks related to fisheries management.
