European decapod fisheries: Assessment and management

Objective

OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
The overall objective of the EDFAM Concerted Action project is to provide a framework for the future data requirements, assessment and management of European decapod crustaceans. EDFAM will also discuss the optimum management structures and policies that connect the structure and dynamics of these resources, the fishing process and the socio-economic framework within which they are exploited. These actions are warranted given the low level of assessment work and consequent poorly defined management policies for the majority of these species and the importance of these resources to artisanal and offshore fisheries in Europe.

Although some stock monitoring programs exist in many countries and assessment is carried out at the ICES WG level there is significant doubt regarding the robustness of the models and the advice to management.
