The overall objectives of the project are to identify and understand specific shortcomings in the European fisheries policy and its implementation, which have contributed to the problems evident in several European fisheries, and to devise means for their rectification. The project will focus on the knowledge production and decision-making within the fisheries management system, the interrelationships between these processes and the role played by stakeholders. Fisheries for North Sea cod will be adopted as a case study. The products of the project will be a policy brief presenting proposals for improvement of the use of knowledge in management decisions and papers in international scientific journals.
