Technical developments and tactical adaptations of important EU fleets

Objective

The overall objective of TECTAC is to supply fisheries managers with a modeling tool that will allow them evaluating the impact of regulations on the dynamics of fleets and fishing mortality. The carrying Idea of this project is the investigation of the dynamics of the elements that cause fleet dynamics: the technological advances in both gears and vessel equipment, and also the overall tactical adaptation of fishing vessels. How do they occur? Why do they occur? What are their consequences on the resource and their socio-economics?

In order to address these Issues, in relation to the overall objective, this study aims,
(i) to Identity, analyse and model the fundamental elements underlying fleets dynamics,
(ii) to relate fleets dynamics to management regulations and to other externalities,
(iii) to evaluate the impact of management on fleet dynamics to management regulations and to other externalities,
(iiii) to evaluate the impact of management on fleet dynamics, fish resources, fleets and fishing communities.
